Heavy down-pour, NO. Light rainfall all day there OK with.
Yup, mine too. Makes for good worm hunting I think

The rocks only mildly dislike snow.. otherwise it's outside all day..and the BSLs are learning as is the EE....the RIRs not so much and the leghorn crosses are on the fence about the rain...might even be a personal preference thing for some..the rocks basically will avoid walking in snow but some do if the curiosity and inducement is there, but not all.....but the rain? problem at all... :run:

I used to have some Red Sex-Links that loved the rain.
