    Our 10 week old chicks are staying out in the rain, should I make them stay in shelter or allow them to choose?

    Allow them to choose.
    If they feel to wet they will go in the shelter

    Agreed. My flock sometimes look like drowned rats, but they still refuse to take shelter from the rain - them's chickens for ya.
