This is our first winter with chickens and they refuse to leave their coop and go into the run where the water and food is. It's been 2 days since the snowstorm that left about 8 inches on the ground. After about half a day, the kids took them out to play in the snow for a while and i brought them a bowl of warm water, which they drank all of immediately. They also ate a lot of food that was given to them like they were starving. Today I had my daughter shovel out their run, but they still aren't having it. I brought them water several times today in their coop, but I know thats supposed to not be a good idea because of the humidity, but I know they also need to use water for regulating their temperature. Is this a common problem? Do we just need to keep putting the chickens in their run? Or will they figure it out if we leave them be? They just seem so confused, lol. We might invest in a tarp for over their run to keep future snow out- it is a pergola style top with hardware cloth on it.
