    Does anyone else seem to notice that their birds go nuts when outside in the rain all day?

    Mine will squawk minimally, but when it rains...it is crazy.

    The chickens love the rain.. They look like drowned rats when they come back in the coop for night time. [​IMG]
    The ducks LOVE the rain and will stand in it no matter what. (Unless I lock them inside.)

    I haven't had my Guinea Keets outside yet though.

    Mine don't mind the rain, no more noisy than they usually are, lol. But I have noticed they are too stupid to get out of it before they are soaked to the bone, so I usually have to go out in it and get them rounded up [​IMG]

    LOL, my chickens love the rain. What little we've had in Central Texas this year. Guineas havent seen but a small shower, but they loved it. My 2 Ruens run for cover under the porch. If they had umbrellas they'd probably still run for cover [​IMG]. I guess they think the pond is the only place they are supposed to get wet! They are unlike any duck I've had, backwards!
