    my family and I are expecting rain this week and I was wondering if my chickens will be okay in an outdoor coop . the rains we have are very heavy , but I don't know if I should shut them out of the run and move their water and food from the run into the coop , or just leave them as I always do .
  2. If you think the feed will get soaked put it in the coop. The chickens should go in on their own

    As long as they r free to go in and out of the coop they will be fine. I have some that love the rain and others that don't care for it so they choose where they want to be. But like poultry parent said if the food will get wet move it.
