In ky, where the rain just won't stop. Brand new to raising chickens. They all got soaked but didn't seem to mind. Being the overprotective person that I am I gathered them up in the coop and towel dried them and turned on the sweeter heater. They began preening before I left the coop. Temp. is supposed to drop tonight from high 50's today to high 30's. Did I do enough???

If your coop is well ventilated, so that the moisture can escape, they should be fine. Mine get soaked foraging in rainy, 40* degree weather all the time, and they do just fine. Cold, rainy weather is just a part of life where I am.

Thank you for the reply. They all seem to be doing just fine and the girls are still laying. Guess i'm just a nervous Nelly.
