And keep them dry! We've got 300 out on pasture, been there a couple of
weeks, and one of our tractors collects rainwater which has now resulted in
several pneumatic chicks, which I did not suspect would happen with the
tractors being on the side of a steep hill.  go figure.

I let my chicks out at 3 weeks.  As long as it's nice weather, they have
some shade and are out of the wind, I think they will be fine.

Does anyone know how soon we should start letting the little chicks onto
some grass (in a very protected run) for a few minutes? I read somewhere
that they would adapt better for free ranging if you started them young.
