    Had about 8 inches of snow here in southern Ohio, chickens don't want to go out, just squack and walk around, they will have warm oatmeal today. Thanks for the tip, of course, that will make them happy. Plan to make a run for them to see if they will come out. Love having the chickens, usually get twelve eggs.

    Try shoveling a path for them. My chickens loved the snow, but only when its sunny out and the snow isn't too deep.
