    Should I worry about my chickens/chicks tonight? Right now the wind is pretty strong and is going to be a thunderstorm later tonight. It could possibly turn into a tornado though. Should I worry or am I overreacting

    As long they are out of the wind, in the coop, they should be okay.
    Might want to close some windows, if the rain could get in or if it's cold (Near freezing).

    Stay Safe.

    A tornado will rip the whole chicken coop out depending on how close it is and how dangerous it is on the F1-F5 scale if there is a tornado headed towards the chicken coop the only option would be to put them in House or Garage.

    Ok they are fine! I put a tarp over them and that kept most of the wind out. A large thunderstorm is passing us now. We just got the worst of it just awhile ago I think. There will be more of it later tonight though. I dont think a tornado will hit us, I was overreacting. The winds were strong though. Well thanks for the help!
