The eye of tropical storm Edouard is passing over us as I type. I let the chickens out this morning since the storm never developed into a hurricane I decided that it would be fine for them to go out. They seem to be doing very well; as the feeder bands move across the area and it starts raining hard they go under the chicken house. When the rain lets up they come out and forage. I figured if they are going to live on the Gulf Coast they need to get used to this type of weather.
