yesterday it rained while i was not home. i figured that the chickens would go inside with the goats (they get along). they alway put their selfs up into the coop when i open the gate. their coop is not in the pasture b/c we built by the garage b/c of the electricity thinking we would but wheels on it and then move it down there. well it sunk into the ground and is stuck. but anyway they didn't go inside. not even under a tree! they stood in the corner of the fence. why would they not go inside in really bad storm? I also have a question about one of my BR. she seems to slower then the others. it takes a awhile for her to figure out that you walk around a gate and not through it all the hens will walk around the gate but she will just run into it. and that you jump into the coop and not under it. all the hens will walk to the coop and jump up but she just keeps walking and then stops and looks around for the other hens. she also will not come to me or come to the feeder by herself. if i put her in the coop and then but down feed she will not see it but if the other hens go for the feed then she will to. she seems to get along fine with others and also free ranges well but will sometimes get separated and just stand there looking around until another hen walks by and then she'll follow them.
