Bad weather

Would ye bother with letting out fowl of a bad day or would ye leave them in and feed and water them inside.hardly any sense in having them soaked to the skin

Let mine out and they had a peck and scratch around,they,re still out now,bit of wind and rain will do them no harm.
They have the option of going back in if they want and have decided to stay out.

I left them in today itís blowing hard the wind and plenty of rain. The shed does get wet on a bad day like that.they have plenty of food and water in the shed. Thanks nama man.nice to know what the rest of ye do.everyday is a school day

mine are also out, an can choose to stay out or go in, most will go back in once it starts to rain, or stay close to the hedges during bad winds.

My biggest problem is the door on the shed is a house size pvc door and the place soaks with bad weather.meant to cut a pop hole but never got to it yet.they are out every day apart from a storm. I donít think they missed much today anyway. If I had the choice Iíd be inside today

The small hatch door is very handy and safer in windy weather
