I understand that chickens can be outside in the winter, but how long do we allow them to stay out? Do you leave your coop door open and allow them to come and go as they please? Today we had a windy 30 degrees and I was wondering what I should be doing when I get chickens. Do you only allow them out a cetain time? I was just wondering because how long will chickens stay in a coop before they feel like the walls are closing in? Sorry, that's how I feel sometimes!
