    Ok so in Massachusetts we had torential rain storms for the past three days. Sun finally came out today, but my poor 13 meaties look like dried muddy drowned rats. Their feathers are pasted together and they are walking funny. It is ok to give them warm baths right??? otherwise they will be freezing if the temps drop again. I figured they would go in their coop during the storms, but nope...too dumb.

    You could bathe them, dry them, and put them back out once they are dry.

    Mine won't go in either. I just put them to bed every night. After it rained here mine looked 100% better.
