Hi, need advice. We in Queensland are having a drenching blowing rain. I found the chickens hiding under the frangipani tree, looking like cats do when they get wet. They will stay out in a normal rain but this weather is tropical heavy rain and wind. I bribed them back into their covered coop where they clucked at me in confusion. I gave them more feed and put down dry hay. My worry is there are snakes about and a 6 ft python ate one this morning just down the road from me. So, am I doing the wrong thing by getting them our of the rain but possibly making them sitting targets if another snake is about? I've already had 2 snakes this summer in the coop but fought them off, Snakes still alive somewhere but the snake removalist did take them off several ks away. Leave them in the coop to stay dry or let them out in the rain???? Help!
