    My chickens were never scared of the rain, until the other night. Where I live we got severe thunderstorms and my chickens didn't like it at all. I heard the loudest thunder I have ver heard before and it rained for hours. Now whenever it rains they all run into the coop and huddle into the coop. Any ideas on breaking this crazy behavior?

    Just time. After they experience a few gentle and quiet rains they venture back out into into the rain again.
