Newer at chickens. Last batch I picked up in January, but this batch of ornamental layers+5 (20) got mid June. I put them outside in their peck and play, for the first time, last Sunday, and 4 died. How old before I should put them outdoors? They were in the shade, with water, but it was 85 degrees. One big Australorp and all 4 Black Polish ? (ie. cute cottontops) were either dead or dying by noon. I split them up into separate dog excercise pens in the basement, but afraid to put them back outside in their peck and play.
