Riddle me this:
When it rains, and you have a small flock of 5 chicks in a backyard run, do you:
- keep them locked in the coop?
- open their door and let them decide for their tiny-brained selves?
- let them out and figure they’ll tough out the rain?
These are things a newby chicken-keeper wants to know.
Thoughts, any backyard chicken folks?
Addendum: Never mind, the weather answered it for me. Driving rain and high wind caused me to have pity on the chicks and turn on the heat lamp for them in the coop.
Next up: is that a chicken or a rooster? Coming soon . . .
