    I have 10 week old silkies, and it just rained. If they are let out of the coop, is that bad?

    I've never had a problem with it? They can and mine usually do get muddy but they don't usually roll around in it (usually XD) so a bath probably wouldn't be needed.

    Mine go out IN the rain. And snow, sleet, ect. The door is open for them everyday, if they want out, they go out, no matter the weather. I've noticed my chickens don't care for high winds, but they aren't really phased by anything else.
