It rained a lot.
My poor girls! These photos were taken on a day when it rained particularly heavily and just would not stop, not even for a few minutes. Puddles formed and it wasn't long before Hen, Margot, Maureen starting looking very bedraggled and sorry for themselves.
Dan was an absolute love and went out in the rain to make a shelter for them as they didn't want to stay in their coop - which was toasty and dry I might add. This helped and by the evening the rain eased up enough for them to dry off a little.
It's only temporary though. We need to come up with something sturdier to protect them from the elements. In the meantime, at least this make shift shelter works. So hopefully I won't see them looking that soggy again for a while!
