    Dear all,

    My pullets are 3 months old and were recently moved into a new coop and run. I assumed that when it rained earlier this week, they'd have the common sense to go back inside their new coop but when I got home, they were just standing there getting wet. So um...how bad is it if they get wet? (It's raining in SC right now)

    IF they're 3 months old, fully feathered, and can get in out of the rain ( when they want to ), they should be fine. As long as their coop and roosting area is dry, and not freezing cold, they'll do ok. Mine love to get out in the rain and chase the floating worms.
