    My boys won't come in out of the rain and it is supposed to get down to the low 30's tonight. Should I be worried? (I already am.) When it rains in the day they go into their house, but tonight it is storming and they refuse.

    Do not worry. My peas have spent nights in the cold, rain, sleet, and snow. They do have shelter with tall roosts, but sometimes prefer the great outdoors!!

    Thank you, I've been so worried. I tried putting them in their house, but they just don't like to be inside at night.

    Is this a common thing with peas? My peas have a shelter as well but still every night two of them sleep outside of it. Rain or not, 30s or 60s. I don't understand it..[​IMG]

    Yes, can be common. Could be a number of reasons, preference, flock hierarchy....but it is okay
