I’m just wondering if any has any advice regarding silkies and bad rain. I currently have two 13 week old silkies and the weather where I live in the uk has been dreadful the past two days. It’s been raining really heavy and I’m worried about them getting too wet. I’ve read things online that they can die of hypothermia very fast if they get too wet and I don’t want that to happen. They’ve been out in the run all day and have spent most of the time under the coop seeking shelter from the weather, but they have still managed to get quite wet. Is the rain really as bad for them as I have read or will they be okay? Should I lock them in the coop when it’s raining bad or just let them out to do what they please? They don’t seem to mind the rain at all and have been enjoying hunting for worms. But I don’t want my inexperience with the breed to end up getting them ill.
