It's raining today and my girl are wet. I have never seen them mad. Is this just something they say?

My Diva's HATE the rain. My Jersey Giant BAAWWWKS at me like I'm somehow causing this and can make it stop. They just hunker down under their house and REFUSE to come out.

Wait 'til you see them in snow! We had a very snowy winter last year and my flock practically refused to come out even when I'd shoveled the run. One of the hens flew through the human-door into the un-shoveled garden and sunk right in up to her crop. That was one angry hen!

In a downpour they seem to be more irritated than mad. Living in the sticks we often heard this saying when somebodys mom was looking for them with a switch. When moms were really mad they were madder than a wet hornet, although the switch stung whether from a wet hen or hornet.

Well I've been 'round a woman scorned and it aint purty!
So a wet hen would pale in comparison. Rain= another day at the office, Wet by hose unwillingly=most evil thing in their day.
