    I live in MN and right now we are getting rain/freezing rain. My ducks have an area to get out of it but they all seem to be sitting out in it? Is that ok for them? And this is duck related but what about chickens or guineas? I can't catch all of them and they don't seem to want to go inside anything! HELP?!?! lol

    Leave 'em be. They're tough little buggars. If they get too cold, they will retreat to cover.

    I'm in Wisconsin, and your freezing rain is supposed to reach us later this afternoon!

    But I agree; as long as all the birds have access to shelter, just leave them outside. If it gets too nasty, they'll wander inside.
