Been snowing for 2 days now on and off. We have 5 to 6 inches on the ground. We opened the coop door last nice when there was only a dusting and only one came out ran once around the coop and when back in. Guess they are smarter than I thought......

Not really. Some of mine will walk thru it, others fly over it. If it's snowing, or just snowed, they don't come out of their coop.

Depends on the chicken. Some are wimps and hate snow and refuse to go out in it (like mine
) and some don't care what it's doing, they like to be out. As long as they can come back in when they want to, they'll be fine.

I like your pictures. The chickens have the same "You certainly don't expect us to go out in this, do you?" look that mine have. That coop is totally buried under snow! Poor chickens!

We keep checking them and they seem to be happy hanging out in the coop, we have heat lamps in there still since they are only 8 weeks old and we have been having some really cold night still in the great pacific NW.
more than 6 inches on the ground and still snowing.
Didn't someone say it was now spring!

It snowed here this year. This is the first snow any of my chickens have seen and some are two years old. I opened my run door thinking the ducks would have a good time in it. The chickens beat the ducks out the door and had a ball.
