I have two four month old leghorns that are just starting to lay eggs and two five month old ducks Perkin's. My ducks like it outside in all weather and rarely use the small barn we have for them but my hens use to stay in their barn a lot but will come out all the time now. What concerns me is my little hens will come out in the rain and cold and i want to know if they are ok doing this. My ducks and hens are in a large enclosed pen with plenty of room so we don't lock them in at night. Thank you.
