    Well, I don't know... Tonight is the first time my girls have been outside in a thunderstorm... I keep going to look at their coop... My wife thinks that I'm over protective, but if I had a place, I would bring them inside [​IMG]

    Mine experienced their first thunderstorm outside at about that age. I was in town, and when I got home and went out to the run, they were all very vocal about the desertion. My Welsummer jumped into my lap and talked about it extensively. I didn't know chickens knew those kinds of words [​IMG]

    They all came through fine, had apparently gone in the coop when the rain started and the thunder boomed (and it was a doozy, even by Kansas standards).
