    We had lots and lots of rain yesterday and especially last night and this morning. It has stopped now and I went out to get eggs. The girls look pretty bedraggled but they are running around like normal. I hope they will be ok. It is not supposed to get really cold until tomorrow night so I guess they will dry out by then. The run looks awful. All the holes they have dug are full of water. It should drain fairly quickly. They could stay in he coop or under the coop which has plenty of space, it is about 3 feet off the ground, but they insist on running around everywhere in the mud. I found two worms swimming in the driveway as I was going out and took them to the hens. They were gobbled up in a heartbeat.

    Can you tell me where I can get Barred Holland chicks, or hatching eggs?
