    Hello,

    As many of my UK friends would agree, we're certainly experiencing plenty of rain at the moment. My chickens are getting soaked, and even during the dry days are listless with tails down. Do you think the weather could have anything to do with this, and if so, what could I do to help them?

    Yes. Their main coop has dry sawdust on the ground, is sheltered and has several levels of perches. I've noticed that the feathered feet ones are particularly dismal... do you think that is because of the feathers?
