    Here it is 2:30 in the morning I go into the kitchen to grab a snack, look outside and one of my chickens is out in the rain waking around, just walking all over the place. I called him he came right to me, I grabbed him and he let out this huge scream. I wrapped him up in my robe because he was DRENCHed and in the house for the night he goes. What a crazy chicken.. Apparently he didn't set his watch to the sun down and go to bed.

    Is your coop locked up so predators can't get in? I wonder if something scared him out...

    It's doubled locked up, another words we have a walk in coop thats closed up and where they sleep is another coop that's locked up. We have a raccoon problem. So we builta coop inside a coop. have no clue why this guy was out, does seem weird.. Everybody else went to bed on time and i checked on them all they were up in there roosting area, sleeping until I popped my head in there then they made that weird cackling noise..
