Lots of rain
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
Here in Oregon we are on flood watch. We have a roof on the run for the chickens but they are still getting wet with the amount of rain/wind. Poor things look like drown rats. Should I be concerned that they can get sick? Should I lock them in the coop? I have 2 chicks about 2.5 months old. The rest are 10 months old.
I live in Oregon as well and it is raining hard right now! To give my chickens a little more protection, I tied feed bags to the chicken wire. It helps block the rain a bit and somewhat colorful. I think the younger ones would be fine. Chickens are hearty, but I would still keep a close eye on them just in case.
