We're going to be having terrible rain storms for the next couple of days. I had to bring our chicks inside the house to warm up and dry off.

Our Silkies are 6 wks old.
The BO and OE are 8-9 wks old.
And Pebbles(Blue Wyandotte) is 16 wks old.
I feel bad that their temporary coop wasn't able to keep them safe.

Yes if you can bring them in do so. They’re young keep them dry and warm. A lot of people wouldn’t even have the option to bring them in.
A dry coop/run is very important for healthy chickens. If your set~up doesn’t provide a dry area now is the time to start that project. A roof or tarps perhaps. Best wishes

Please include pic of there temporary coop outside. My red quill are 10weeks or so off the top of my head, we have had a solid week of rain with lows of high 20s and highs mid 50s. Now looking at another week of rain with high in that week high 60s and lows of high 20s. They do fine outside
