I have just noticed stains~ discoloration on my egg for the past 3 days, I was wondering what it wascogburn said:Welcome !! From North East Texas, I too open the run on rainy days, some jump right out and go about their day like normal, and some will hang around and watch the others but they all eventually end up outside. On rainy days you may see stains on your eggs, it's just that the humidity and wet hay and feathers in the nest boxes cause a discoloration, no need to be alarmed its not all the time when it rains but it can happen, just FYI.
Take some pics and share with the class..
Again Welcome !
As long as the birds can get dry, have clean food, water and nesting sites, they will go in and out as they please. We always offer a red heat lamp over a dry area in the coop. Birds who get too wet and cold seek out these areas. Healthy birds can handle freezing temps as long as they are dry. 40 degrees and rainy? They need a place to bring up their core temp.chickengirl2012 said:Hello iam new and where just enquiring about getting a coop online for chickens so many questions about these birds how do they cope with all this wet weather we are having?
