I bought a coop thru the web and have since discovered that it leaks all over the place when it rains. Luckily that doesn't happen very much here. That may be why it leaks, because the wood has dried up and shrunk. We had a really hard rain the other night and in the morning I found that the pine shavings were wet all over the coop, even in the nest boxes. I decided to cover part of the run and the coop with a tarp for rain, wind and snow protection. The run is a chian link dog kennel and the coop is inside it. Well now the chickens will only go into the part of the run that is not covered! I don't know if they will be willing to go back into their coop come nightfall. More than half of the run is covered and they are pressed up against the far side of the fence. I would let them free range but as I said I don't think they will head back in tonight. I tried getting them over to the "dark side" by putting out some scratch and they came over for a minute and then ran away. It doesn't help that it is windy today and that is blowing the tarp some. Any suggestions?
