    Hi, I really need some advice, there is meant to be a huge windy storm coming and I want my hens to be alright. My coop isn't that sturdy so I am wondering where to put them. We have a big garage and a shed but this storm will be so big I'm worrying about whether the shed may collapse. Need some advice quick as the storm starts tomorrow!!!

    Maybe some temporary cages in the garage?

    Good Luck!

    We went through it in Norfolk, wasn't nearly as bad as they made it out to be. I didn't lock up my Chickens and they weathered it just fine in a sheltered area of my yard
