So we put our pullets out a few weeks ago and they still haven't fully grasped the concept of roosting, but they normally go to the hen house instead of staying in their enclosed run when bed time rolls around. But tonight we have a line of thunderstorms headed our way so I decided to check to make sure they were in safe. Lo and behold, they were piled in a chicken pile right on the corner of the run, closest to our house, entirely exposed to the elements, smooshed up against the hardware cloth. I walked into the run and transferred each chicken up to the roost where they chirped indignantly at me and then eventually settled down to sleep. Do storms influence their behavior? I would think the loud noises would make them want to go up to the safe enclosed space? The storm isn't here still, but the thunder has started in earnest.
