So windy here in New York today. They say not to let them be in a draft, what about the wind? Should I keep them in the coop? They don't act like they like it but will come out into the yard???:confused:

Its been nasty windy where I am for too many days to count. More than a week anyway. I still let my girls out to play. They'd rather roam around for awhile than be "cooped" up. Sometimes they'll just congregate under a shrub if it gets too windy or rainy for their liking or they head back to their house.

Yea, mine don't want to be in the coop, even in the high winds, they huddle in wind breaks around the house and have now started going under my front porch. I have to fence that off. If something happens to one I would have no way to get to them. GGgrrrr.

Until a couple of weeks ago, my girls had never encountered the outdoors before, so I don't think they are too fazed about a windy day. I let them out briefly yesterday and they didn't seem to notice.
