    Hi! My chickens are about 12 weeks old and are turning into such brats! Since they have been in their outside coop/run they have become very independent!! Today it started raining and I was at the grocery store, I came home to find half in the coop and the other half prancing around soaked in the rain. They seemed to be enjoying it, but I tried to put them inside anyway. It was a lost cause, so I finally gave up! I only got wet and muddy.......I know the ducks love to be in the rain, but is it ok with the chickens? My run is not covered yet:(

    Mine will go under the tree and get soaked before going into the coop. They are fine and it is too hot for them to get chilled.
