I had thought, up until today, that my hens would know enough to get out of the rain. I was wrong! We had a bad storm pop up this afternoon. There was thunder, lightening, wind and torrent of rain. I went out to the hen house and run to put my two 8 week old pullets into the hen house from their segregated run area. They were afraid and ran back and forth in their little run area , not being willing to go into their cat carrier transport for the short trip to the hen house. I finally was able to get them into the carrier and then into their caged in area in the coop. It was at that point that I noticed that my two hens, Roxy and Pebbles were not yet in the coop. I looked out the coop window and saw the two hens standing at the far end of their run, frozen and staring catitonically through the fencing. The rain was comming down in sheets, yet they made no move to come into the hen house through their "hen's door". I had to run out of the hen house and get them. They didn't even flinch as I snatched each of them up and stuffed them through their door. They do not like to be handled normally so the fact that they did not even flinch when I grabbed them was a surprise! This is the first time that I have seen them in a thunder storm, is their reaction to to this storm typical behavior? Is there any thing I can do in the future to make these type of storms easier on them?
