Of course it would start raining like we are in the Amazon the first day we put the girls out in their coop. They've been exploring the run all week and as soon as we got the coop water tight (yesterday due to leak in one nest box), the skies open up a thousand kegs of H20+ I have some question while I ponder bringing them in the house like a fool; should I leave their pop door open or do I lock them inside of the coop? Do chickens like the rain? If they get wet do I have to blow dry them or will they dry off in their bedding? My mom who has been raising layers and meat birds for years and says I'm nuts but I just want to make sure my tiny micro-flock will be ok. I've been around adult birds but never experienced such young birds first hand.
