    The girls will not come out of the coop when it is the least bit windy. They will pop their heads out and then head right back in.
    Is this normal or do I have chicken chickens????? [​IMG]

    I believe this might be normal chicken behavior...Is there something for them to eat out in the run? Can you put up some kind of wind break? Is it so bad that they don't come out when it is windy...after all, they may not want to mess up their feather.:O)

    It shows that you have smart birds. Sometimes mine go outside despite the weather, and order me to make it change. [​IMG]
