|The North Wind shall blow and We Will have snow, what will poor Chicken do then? Poor thing! She'll Go in the 'barn' and keep herself warm and tuck her head under her wing!|
Yesterday they all stayed out in the rain and looked like drowned rats. Chickens are not really supposed to get wet, but I think they can look after themselves and run for cover if they need it. Maybe as these are not a year old they are like children and cannot think sensibly for themselves. Freedom is their main objective, they love to run around, rain or no rain. They are spending lots of time puffing up in the colder weather and preening to maintain their feathers. They have been looking like 'Fat Little Hens'.
