    I'm 2 hours north of you in NY, and we only got a dusting. I was glad to see it stayed down south. Keep the snow on the coop roof,it makes great insulation. My flock has only ventured outside once in the past week. They hate the snow......Stay home,stay warm & be safe!

    We got a solid two feet. I had to shovel to get their door open, but amazingly enough, despite their having no heat in the coop, their water wasn't even frozen! They have heated water bottle, but the non-heated one was icy but not frozen.

    I shoveled out their pop door and managed to open it but they looked at me like, "Are you nuts?" LOL

    Only the top inch of their pop door was visible!
