are chickens smart enough to get out of the rain?
Mine are not!!
They seem to like it actually as long as it is not cold. I think of it as a free bath!!
smart enough yes.
They will stay out in it unless it rains really hard, then they go inside.
Mine NEVER go into the coop when it starts to rain. They usually head for my truck and sit under it until it stops. Mine won't go near their coop until dark.
Quote:Same here, mine usually look for a tree or a bush to hide under but they don't usually go back to the coop during the day.
Mine are good about going back in the coop.
I would say it's about half and half with mine. Some seem to enjoy the rain while some will go into the coop or the barn. I guess it just depends.
Ours seem to love the rain.When out in the rain they look miserable but actually enjoy it.So much for the old saying "Mad as a wet hen"!
Mine hardly ever go in when its raining. It takes a lot before they have had enough.
My birds seem to enjoy the rain. They do go in if it's pouring out.
