    My chooks all like to be out in the rain, and their feathers keep them pretty warm unless your climate is extreme. As long as she has access to it, she should go in when she's ready (or when the sun sets - chickens seem to be programmed to return to the coop at dusk).

    Have you taken a second look at the coop to see just what it is she doesn't like? As far as rain, I've always read the BO's don't like rain. Something about the feathers not shedding water. Well, mine stay in the rain till "they" figure it enough. I leave to them. Not any of them stay in the rain.
