Hey everyone I’ve been stalking the site for so long for so much info about chickens. I now have six! Three Buff Orpingtons: Themis and Rhea and three Speckled Sussex: Mnemosyne, Tethys and Phoebe. They are about 14 weeks now and free range most of the days, but they have a big run and coop to go into. The trouble is they don’t want to! We just had a huge rain here and I about pulled my hair out trying to get them to run back to their covered run. They got soaked. It’s 80 degrees here and I of course worry about them getting a chill. Their feathers hold so much water. I tried to approach them with a towel and they just grumbled at me and ran away.
