Its FINALLY showing here in Idaho, and my girls don't seem to mind it AT ALL, in fact they are out milling around in it all morning. I plan on getting some vaseline on their combs today but is there anything else I need to worry about? Will they get too wet and too cold being out there while it is snowing? I can lock them up in the coop if I need to.

If they're willing to be out in it, I wouldn't worry about it. Now, if it's super cold AND windy, I have contained my birds to the run (but not the coop housing), because I have windbreaks up around it. Mind don't mind falling snow, but sure don't like it on the ground!! lol You must have some hardy birds
