So, I learned last night as a big storm was rolling in that trying to herd the chicks towards the coop to keep them safe & dry might be a good idea as long as you are NOT holding an umbrella to keep you dry!! Holy Cow!! As soon as they saw the umbrella, they ran in 10 different directions!!! So instead of allowing them to ride out the storm in the bushes together by our back porch, they spent the bulk of the storm spread out all over the yard - running from me - who was soaked to the bone even though I was the one with the umbrella!! Lesson learned!!
