It is easy to tell when it is raining outside because hummingbirds will remain perched on the hummingbird hanger between feedings..it is also being very wet outside is another indicator.
Last night the chicks were free roaming and snuck in between the fence mesh holes (due to being small) and spent the night in the coop with the other chickens. For the most part it all went fine except ‘hoder’ had trouble getting up to the roosting spots and Chickie took exception to it and chased after hoder, then Hoppy the peafowl chased Chickie outside, all was fine after. Developmentally hoder seems small and somewhat slower..hopefully things speed up. I put them back in the mini-coop at sunrise just to be sure and sealed them all up for another week..only to roam when we are supervising..not to mention the rain gauge was predicting rain and we did not want them getting too wet. Groan..
