    Out of my 14 chickens I have only 1 RIR and 2 BSL's in the group. They will forage aggressively during a driving hard rain while the other chickens nap in the coop run. I guess grass and weeds are easier to pull when wet.

    I have a RIR and some RSL that seem to really enjoy a good rain shower too. The RIR is funny, she doesn't mind getting wet from rain but doesn't like her feet getting wet when I clean out their outside waterers. Funny chickens!
