It rained today. Oh, did it ever rain! I came out to find my hennies soaked and my chicken yard in a mess. The area just outside the gate to the run was pooling with water. The structure that was supposed to keep the feed dry had flooded. (Raven Wyandotte and Flicker Comet were seeking shelter.) My dust bath house had filled with water. The area right outside my coop was something akin to a river. And then there were the girls. I could not believe how wet some of them had gotten! Betty looked quite sodden. Merlin was soaked through. She tried to preen herself dry, but it was hopeless at that point. There were many soggy birds at the feed dishes. Frou-frou had some strange, spiky styling going on with her feathers. She was not in the mood for pictures in her condition. Olive was surprised that the others had not been smart enough to get in out of the rain. She Who was possibly the soggiest of all, and yet she was still out in the rain. But at least she looked kind of sparkly out there. It's supposed to get cold tonight, very cold. I didn't think it a wise idea to leave these poor girls soaking wet in the freezing temperatures. So the wettest were dried with a towel and put to roost. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera on me at that point, for some of those girls were adorable all wrapped up in a towel! All in all, a pretty lousy day. :/ Oh, well.
