Chickens in the wind

Close your eyes.. picture a small black and white hen… she really wants to get into the hen house… wind is gusting to 20 mph out of the South East…. she is on a trajectory of heading East to hen house… gust of wind and she is now going North into side of building… ooppss now tail feathers are acting as a sail and she is not tacking well.. heading past house towards fence. Finally she makes the turn and vanishes, hopefully into the house.
Most of other hens are heavier birds and dont blow around the yard. Of course Millie the little polish is a bit wind blown today… I think she decided to stay at home.
Egg production dropped a bit when the winds started up, cant blame the hens.. wind blowing up the behinds probably shoves the egg in wrong direction.
