I live in Texas, where it never rains. Finally, we've been blessed with a weekend of decent rain for the first time in ages! It's been raining moderately hard all morning, and although I've had the run door open all day, everyone has stayed in, under the shelter. Now that it's slacking off a bit, three (two hens and my rooster) have come out into the middle of the yard and are just standing there. It's the oddest thing to watch since they're ALWAYS on the move, scratching, pecking, eating, etc. It's as if they're enjoying the cool rain! Furthermore, I find myself standing in the window watching them stand there, almost in the same trance they seem to be in! Rain drops running down the Black Australorp's back is particularly beautiful.
