Your roosters are beautiful
I agree with this- it's sort of nice to know exactly where they will be when they're free ranging.
Snow does make for a good natural fence! LOL!
this is EXACTLY what my 5 chickens do! their first snow brought them fear, but everyone else on the NC page had chickens loving it! heheheh
I opened the run door today and everybody who usually comes out, came out, picked around for about five minutes and went back in. Leaving the rooster to his usual post on the doorjamb. So I lured them all out with a couple of pieces of bread a little while ago. Took them about fifteen minutes to find it all and eat it. Once it was gone, they all went back in. I guess I can't blame them for conserving energy and only moving as much as necessary.
We have a foot of snow in Boston, with more on the way. Usually, I shovel a path from the coop to the stand of evergreens they like to hang out under. Trust me "shovel" is a generous term for what actually I do. In any case, so long as they aren't sinking, they don't mind being out in the cold.
My chickens will not touch snow at all. If the sun melts a little spot off the ramp they will stand outside for a minute or 2 then go back in. I don't even bother going out and opening the coop in the morning anymore.
My flock hate it too! They fly instead of walk then go back inside coop. Good news it is only snowy here at times and usually melts quickly. Gotta love NC
I found proof!!!!
What part of NC? Today's weather says snow storm Pax has hit NC.
