    But the girls look snug as a bug in a rug in their Eglu run.

    Wow I was skeptical that those eggloo's could keep a small group of chickens warm enough in the winter. Boy that company should be paying you for such a great endorsement of their product.

    I have actually shoveled the snow up to and all around the bottom of my coop. It makes for great insulation.
