    I'm not freaking out because I've had chickens do this to be before. However this time I am just a little bit worried. One of my hens wasn't inside when I went to lock them up and it's been raining for a few hours, she is most likely under the porch (or dead, that would be a bummer). Will she be alright if she gets a little wet until the morning. Its 30s to 40s so not too cold. Any thoughts?

    Africa - near the equator
    She'll likely be fine - my chickens stand in the rain when its really hammering down. I'd imagine she is somewhere out of the rain by now though.

    Hi. New here.
    Just wondering if there were any new updates on your chick.
    Hope you have located her and she's well.

    Sorry for the reply a year later but yes, she ended up being just fine.
