    We had our first significant snowfall last night and the chicken will not
    come out of the coop. We even tried to lure them out with treats. Is snow something.
    the new chickens just have to get use to?

    Yes they don't like change but will get use to it. I shovel out the run for them if more than an inch of snowfall. Eventually the run will turn to ice so I just spread out hay or straw for them to stand on instead.
