    I have some barred rocks that are about 2 months old. I usually keep them in the house at night but I left them out at the barn to get acclimated to cooler than house temps. It is a warm night 65 supposed to drop to 50. It has also started raining though. As soon as the sprinkles started I went to check on them. They were sitting in their favorite corner of the run in the rain. I ran them into the barn and they ran right back out.

    Now for my insanity. Here I was at 2 on a rainy morning walking the framework on top of my run to put up a tarp. I had plenty of light 2 500 watt worklights. To add to my lack of common sense I was in the middle of wire tying the grommets to the fence on the tarp that was already in place. In the middle of it I wound up having to tell myself hey retard you could be doing this from under the tarp instead of in the rain now.

    I finally got them to stay in the barn after everything was done and I kept picking them up and putting them in. Is there any hope for me or these mentally challenged Barred rocks?

    you sound like me with the goat the other night. they've pulled their house down three times, so i'm renailing it a fourth. but it's COLD AND SNOWING dont' bug me. so the dog thinks it's fun to jump on the tarp as i'm using it cover their shack plus give them sort of a front porch area. who was dumber, them for their behavior, or me for mine in actually seeing to their needs in this weather. they've not pulled it down again, which i think maybe due to a few choice words i used like, you think a dog wouldn't taste good in a stewpot?

    mine are all warm now as i'm sure yours are too. and hopefully we will both be asleep as well, soon.
