I have 3 adorable chicks, about 5 weeks old and have been hand fed for over 4 weeks now. They are all fully feathered and have been doing very well without a heater (took it away about a week ago when they were pretty much fully feathered). All 3 fly and have started to pick at millet and other foods.

When should I move them to a flight cage? Do they still need to be kept in a dark place?

I'm worried about leaving them unattended and somehow getting stuck in the bars or something. Should I take the bottom grates out so the bottom is just the solid tray for now, or leave the grates in? What all should be in their cage? Something for them to hide in to feel comfortable?

Thank you in advance for any help!!
