    Ugh! Today and yesterday it has been raining steadily. The chickens run is already a mud puddle, it has no drainage at all (it has a cement base and was built before we moved here). My dad built their shelter, but it only has 3 walls with with a roof and open spaces on top of two of the walls. Their bedding is soaked, and they have been perched in the corner all day. I want to put another wall on, but my dad just says that they will survive. Now my question is, will they survive, or do I really need to figure something out for them? Thank you so much!
