Hi. It's been raining nonstop all day and my chickens aren't seeking refuge in their hen house. They do however, stay under the house when it rains--I have it raised 16" off the ground--and just stand there looking miserable. Since the floor is cement and covered with sand, the water pools somewhat and I am afraid their feet will get macerated, leading to skin breakdown and then be susceptible to infection. I've read too that chickens don't do too well in wet conditions, being prone to respiratory infections. Do your chickens stay in the hen house when it's wet out or do they also insist on remaining outside? I finally locked them in after putting a 40 watt light in the house.
