    I Put A Tarp Over The Area Where They Were Because They Did Not Want To Move, It's Raining... They Are Soaking Wet!! I Tried Moving Them Inside And They Werent Having It. So I Moved The Tarp Again... Now They Moved Back To The Rain... Why Are They Doing This? They Are Such Knuckle Heads [​IMG] Is This Ok For Them To Do? Is It Normal?

    I live in Florida, where it rains quite a bit, and they seem to like the rain. Hasn't hurt them yet.

    They are probably afraid of it. I put fresh pine shavings in their coop because I had some and they almost wouldn't go inside--new I guess. I had to cover it up with straw. I would put the tarp up where it makes sense and eventually they should seek its shelter--I would hope. We put tarps over the run again this year to keep out the wind and cold and they weren't at all alarmed because I think they remembered them from last year.
