    Thats right, my girls feets havent touched the snow covered ground since we could SEE the ground. They stand in the doorway, stare at it, and turn their butts around to go back inside. Alot of other people on here talk and post pictures of theirs outside enjoying the snow. Mine? NO.

    Mine are basically the same. They see snow coming down and freeze at the coop door. If they can't see the dirt under the snow they will NOT come out of the coop. Thankfully, we have the run set up where most of the snow is kept out.

    For our girls, there will be a few flakes on the ground (like a very very VERY light dusting to hardly any flakes on the ground at all) and as soon as they poke their heads out the door they are like "uh-uh!" and wag their little fluffy butts back inside the coop.[​IMG]
