    So finally we get some rain and it's not just a little rain it's a lot of rain. Thank goodness I got my run in my poop all fixed up with washed river sand so they're not drowning in mud puddles and water. In between rain pouring and its stopping all for my girls run out of the covered area and protest with loud clucks lol. As if to say "wth is this!" Lol

    Trying to think of what to put in coop for entertainment for them?

    I have seen some of the news footage of your rain, hopefully it's not too bad where you are, scratch, lettuce, hay, and flock blocks are a few entertaining things for chickens.

    Apparently a tornado touched down and pulled a manufactured home up and over! But it was small and not another incident. Lots of flooding.
    I have the coop managed
    Flock block? I'll look into that. I am going to remove two of the four roots and put their food and water in the coop vs in the covered run incase they need to stay inside. I just finished my first batch of fermented feed too so no spillage of messy crumbs in the coop. The coop is raised on wheels
