chickens in the rain

Discussion in 'Managing Your Flock' started by All about the EGG, Aug 4, 2008.

  1. Are they too stupid to come in from the rain? Mine are in the run, and its pouring. They went in once...then they came back out. Severe storm too! Seems like they even knew when the lightning was gonna bang as well.

    my chickens like the rain they will go out and run around especially if it has been pretty hot. I ended up putting a mister in the main flock pen yesterday as it got up to 106.

    My chickens seem to enjoy the rain too... I can always tell when there has been a storm because my polish hen has BAD BAD BAD hair!! She goes all punk!
