The Pekins quickly feed and then go underneath their house, either side can come off during the day to provide them with shelter from the rain or to act as a wind break, whichever is needed, clever design by Lovely Hubby. You can just see the Welsummers sheltering in the Eglu, sometimes this looks like a bus stop of chickens queueing up, as they pour in one by one for the al fresco companionship.
Usually on a wet day only Norman is immune to the rain, standing by the large feeder until he is sodden, seemingly not minding at all. Since his late promotion to Cockerel-ship he does a grand job of guarding his ladies, always on the lookout for dangers to warn them of.
One thing I at first found unusual is the chickens love of wet Layers Pellets. On a drizzly, wet day they always search out the soggiest pellets first, obviously they taste much better wet.
Shhh....but as I type the sun is struggling through, things might be about to change!
