    my chickens just run under a tree (they have an option of a coop) but they just run under a tree or something and rest.

    mine hang out under the pin oaks in the run there are several big trees and i have been out there when it rains. you don't get all that wet.
    they like to get in the wet dirt when i have over flowed the waterer. and sometimes they don't get under the trees and get wet. doesn't seem to hurt them at all and they don't seemed bothered by it!

    Mine have the option of coming in, but ofcourse all 26 of them just stand there. Like hmmmm I'm wet.
