It has been more than a month since there has been snow on the ground, and the darn chickens still won't come outside. I've tried bribing them with bread, but even that isn't enough. Yesterday, when I was bribing them they all stood at the door but wouldn't come out. One of them flew the eight feet or so and landed on my shoulder to get some bread directly from me, but she and the others would not set foot outside the coup. I've also tried laying staw down so they wouldn't have to step directly on the snow, but still no dice. I've considered picking them up and setting them outside for brief periods to condition them to the snow, but haven't tried it yet. Should I just accept that they are too chicken to play in the snow and let them stay inside all winter? Winter here is so long that I worry about their sanity being couped up so long. Any advice?
