    We went out to dinner--came back to the first rain of the yr! LOL -- 4 of my 11 week old chicks were still sitting in the rain--even thought it was pitch dark and pouring rain... Will they get sick? I placed them in the warm dry coop..It has deep pine shavings.. Am I gonna have problems? Thank you.

    They should be fine. It is common to see posts that the chickens stayed out in the rain, and got soaked.

    I was worried because they are so young..They are fully feathered but they still aren't very big! Thank you for the reply! The temp has dropped to 70*..
