    It was a downpour the whole day yesterday. I've worked hard to give the chickens a nice dry, draft-free home. Where were they the entire day? "Let's go play in the mud!!"

    I went out this morning and they were still wet! [​IMG]

    Chickens aren't the sharpest tool in the shed at times. I was told by a man who's raised them for 40 years that you make them shelters just so they have the option of getting out of the rain, not because they'll actually use it. [​IMG]

    Mine go out if it's not raining hard other wise they head for the run and on to their ladder, which is covered or into the coop.

    Rain=bug fest feeding frenzy. Either they will or they won't get out of the rain. Chickens is chickens as chickens are.
