  1. My poor roos! I've got two RIR Roos in my backyard, and Its raining gallons, but they just refuse to go inside the little coop. They look sad and pathetic just standing at the glass door waiting for us the let them in. They're all wet, droopy, and bedraggled. I wish I could do something.

    They should be fine .. They are just trying to pity you into letting them in... So they can raid the fridge, take a nap in your bed, then poop on the way back out....

    First time I saw my girls wet, I wanted to cry.. I went and got the scale and weighed them...They looked so skinny and much to my surprise like small rag-dolls... But they have a beautiful dry coop and they will stay out and free range rather than go inside... I agee===It's a pity party, at your door.. LOL

    Do NOT fall for this! It is indeed an attempt to play on your finer nature! [​IMG] And by the sounds of it, you're about to give in to their evil plot! Just say NO! [​IMG]

    Yeah, my girls do that too. For the life of me, I don't get it! They have this beautiful warm snugly coop with a heat lamp and everything, insulated too...and what do these silly birds do? Wander around in a driving rain all day with temps nearing the point of it snowing! [​IMG] They're brain damaged, I swear! [​IMG]
