This morning we had some heavy storms come through producing lots of rain. Two hens in backyard hunkered down over chicks keeping them dry. Notice both hens oriented in same direction, into the wind. They always seem to orient into wind. Long duration rain events lasting several days very hard on small chicks as hens must balance needs of foraging and staying dry. Use of feeds greatly increases tolerance to inclement weather since birds do not have to devote as much time to foraging.
