    It is 30 degrees and snowing hard where I live. Are my chickens okay outside or should I move them inside?

    Do they stay out all the time with no shelter? If they have access to a coop, barn, or shed of some type they will be fine, but they do need to be able to go in out of the snow and wind when they want.

    They're fine, no worries. We're talking pullets right? Not chicks.
