    lol just had to share. I have two 7 week olds who are in their coop for the first time during a rain. It's no lower then 60 here right now, but it is raining, and they are safely tucked away in a draft free and rain free coop. I had to pick them up and put them in the coop though, otherwise they would be happy as anything standing in the rain.

    I have checked on them a few times and they are cheeping, but it doesn't sound like their loud upset cheeping, so I assume they are fine. Nobody looks uncomfortable, but whenever the raindrops hit the roof they look up like "WHAT WAS THAT?!" lol!!

    They will be going out full time this coming Wednesday.

    I am probably a worry wart. It's cloudy and yucky outside about 60 degrees, but I am right by the coop and hear no cheeping so I assume they aren't too cold..
