We have a new flock, I feed and water my flock outside of the coop. The coop is raised and so the food and water is under there so the girls and boys can eat and drink in shade and out of the rain. Last heavy rain my daughter and I had to place the chickens in the coop, they hung out under it and would have gotten very wet after a while. This morning a light rain started. I am not sure I should open the door to let them out to feed, or if I should keep it closed and put food and water inside the coop. I don't want them getting wet and sick because they are too silly to take one or two steps in the rain to enter the coop. how do other people handle this.
