    the weather's been a bit soggy lately around here, but my girls will NOT get in out of the rain. they roost rain or shine. the only time they use their 'sheltered area' is when they're laying.

    should i be concerned for them?

    Yea but not very much. Are there any roosts in your shelter area?

    Quote:no, it's pretty much a nesting box. i'm thinking i need to put up a bit of tarp over the corner of the coup where the roosts are, but we get a lot of wind with our rain, so even that won't be completely dry.
