    My girls go outside every, single day. It doesn't matter if its; windy, snowy, raining. Today though, they refused to go out all day! We had a large snow system come through, and I think th allure of the semi-ok, kinda-heated coop was a better choice [​IMG] This is the first day that I actually realized only 10-12 standards should be in there. They had enough room to move about and not irritate eachother. THIS is why dh must build me another coop [​IMG]

    We've had 2 snows so far, and none of mine will go out in it. The pop door is in the middle of the human door and as I opened the door to go in the coop, they came out the pop door and circled around into the regular door without ever stepping a foot outside. It was like a little chicken chain! I just don't know what they're thinking.
