    Were you part of the winter storm that just passed here last week in the north east? If so, how did you chickens do? Mine never came out of the coop, even though I went and shoveled them some space to move.

    I kept mine locked up all day Saturday while the snow was coming down. The next day I shoveled them out and let them walk around for a bit. After a couple of minutes they got cold and went right back inside their heated coop [​IMG]

    Well, I'm not an east coaster but we had a 2 day storm around the same time, got 8-10" total...
    ....majority of birds didn't leave the coop for 2 solid days even tho the pop door was open and I shoveled run.
