Riddle me this, chicken people. I have to put my chickens in their coop every night (don't ask. . . they want to sleep outside roosting on top of their coop, I guess). So, last night it was raining and there they are perched on top IN THE RAIN. I thought chickens didn't like the rain. They seemed perfectly content when I put them inside. What weirdos! They were soaking wet. They get in there to lay their eggs. Why don't they go in their coop when it is raining or at least under it. During the day when it rains, they hide underneath the stairs on my deck.
