I hope this is the appropriate section to ask this question. We live in Idaho - our snow levels average between 2-4 feet. We built a new coop this summer, but do not have any runs built yet. Our chickens have been free-ranging. Anyone live in snow country and free-range their chickens in the winter? Or is that impossible? If we have to, we can built a hoop run and cover it partially/completely with tarp for the winter. We have quite a few chickens and if they are not able to get out of the coop during the day, it would be too crowded for them all (8x12, 30 chickens, which will be 9 and 14 weeks old this coming wednesday). Thanks for the input!
