    One of my CxR roos wouldn't come out of the coop today. He just hunkered down under the heat lamp. It's drizzly and 61 deg., so I'm wondering . .

    Is he
    a) sick?
    b) chilled?
    c) smart enough to stay out of the rain?
    d) smart enough to know that if he's sick he'll not be "processed" this week?

    I left him some water, a bit of green tomato, and a little scratch to get his temp up. He's back on his feet, but still pretty quiet.
