I have 8 Cornish Xs who are a little more then 4 weeks old. Yesterday I finished their chicken tractor and moved them into it from a brooder which was getting much to small. This part of the country is pretty wet, rain, rain, everyday it seems and yesterday was no exception. The tractor is 12 foot by 3 foot six. The last 4 foot is tarped (including the end) and their food is under there. But they are sitting on grass, and the grass is wet. Overnight they turned the tarped area into a bit of mud, which I expected, so I will move them today, but when I went to check them this morning they looked pretty miserable. Muddy, a little wet, and pretty annoyed... But I know people keep them on pasture in tractors all weather. I just feel sorry for the muddy wet chickens, if the sun comes out maybe it will be better... IF... Do chickens on pasture just look pitiful in the rain?
