  2. chickens really

    chickens really Overrun With Chickens

    Is the run covered with a tarp or something?....Can they get back into the coop?....Ducks love rain and usually won't go inside a shelter...I always have to put mine in.....I'm sure they will be okay but you might want to make some changes that will work in your situation?....
    Best wishes:frow
