My chicks aren't even fazed by the snow. This is on the drive from the garage to their pen. Eve, my leghorn, didn't miss a beat and gave me an egg in her nest box shortly after. This is their winter pen just outside my backdoor. The PVC forager just isn't up to the winter weather so I had to scramble and convert an old dog kennel. I told my DH we needed to sit some statues in front & put lites on it.
