Are white chickens more likely to be happy going out in the snow? I am wondering if my chicken's avoidance of snow is an instinctual concern about camouflage (or lack thereof) against the all-white background. Anyone with a mixed flock have some observations? I have 2 BR, 1 NHR, and 1 EE. Of these, the NHR, also the lightest color chicken, is the most willing to go outside. My coop is in an exposed area, with almost no habitat "cover" nearby. I am thinking of "planting" some used Christmas trees in the snowbank outside the coop to provide them with temporary cover over the winter. My gals are pretty cold hardy, as I heat the coop only with a 100w heater and only when the temps are below -15F outside. So, I am wondering if the chickens' fear of snow is really a fear of being eaten - and I wonder if white chickens therefore are less afraid of snow? Will adding trees as cover help my gals be more willing to go out?
