    If you live in the Northwest by any chance. . . They'll get used to it. [​IMG] Out here we're getting heavy rains, which is usual, and although there are massive lakes, rivers, and valleys of muck forming, the chickens are pretty much used to it all. The thing to do is make sure they have a dry coop available. [​IMG]

    Quote:put them in their coop at nights and if they feel like step in outside during the day, just let them but also let them have the option of going inside when they want to

    If you are worried your coop will flood out you can put them in a dog crate in your garage or something.
