We have had lots of rain lately so our goats are not really going out. I have heard of people who had goats that enjoyed or didn’t mind the rain, but not Gullringstorp goats. They really hate the rain, so we have indoor activities instead.
Our chickens, on the other hand seem to love the rain. Our Brahma chickens really like the rain and stay out till they are soaking wet. I always worry that they may get sick or something, but I think chickens can take it. No one has gotten sick yet and they really do get soaked.
Here are chickens, goats and a dog:

Our chickens have dug under the fences , my husband repaired them. Here my husband digs under the door to the yard.
My husband decided that these concrete slabs will keep our chickens inside their yard
Leif makes sure that the slabs firmly in place. By the way, what do you think if the beard. He grew this for me while I was in NY. I have always wanted to see him in a beard. I love it!
Welcome back for more activities at Gullringstorp !
