    New member! My chickens stayed in the coop all day, it is overcast/rainy. Is this normal, or at least, nothing to worry about? I've only had them for a week. They are about 19 weeks old.

    Thank you. It didn't actually rain, they just thought it might, I think. They did come out for a little while when I gave them some watermelon. They love that!!
