Good evening folks.
I hope you all are doing well.
I need some re-assurance here. I'm in central PA and we are getting rained on pretty steady today. I went into the coop this evening to check on my 6 week old ladies (who have been doing extremely well). I open the door to the coop only to find multiple places where the rain is leaking in through the roof of my 9 x 18 coop (about 5 or 6 different spots). The drips are not super fast, but they are steady with about 4 or 5 seconds between drips. The girls are all huddled together under the heat lamp, and they look to be dry, but I'm concerned that some of them might be stupid enough to possibly lay where the water is dripping. There are plenty of "dry spots", but I'm worried that they might get sick or something. Will they be OK until I get get a temporary repair on my roof? I didn't realize my roof leaked that badly. There was only one spot last time and I put a tarp over it and had no problems during the last rain. But this time the rain has been much steadier and heavier, so now I guess I'm seeing the real condition of my roof. I just hope they'll be OK until I can "fix it". I can't really bring them back in the garage as the brooder is way too small for the 8 of them now. What do you all think??
