My two broody hens have hatched some silkies and showgirls from eggs, and are taking them roving around the big run, scratching for bugs in the compost, etc. But now they are predicting rain for next week. Not wanting my precious babies to get chilled, I'm wondering if I should shut them inside the coop for the duration. At the very least, I'll put a feeder and waterer inside so they don't have to go outside. Do hens have the sense not to take the babies out in the rain? Not sure if I want to risk wet chicks. Even if they weren't silkies and showgirls, they would only be just over a week old, not a good time for rainy weather. So, should I keep them shut in?
