    First snow of the season today and my girls where totally freaked out by it I think. They didnt want to get out of the coop except for one and she followed me around and was SOOOO loud... i guess that she was letting me know that it was snowing... it is chilly and they are a bit wet from the snow but they wont go upstairs in their coop where the heat lamp is on... are they just being silly or should I shove them up there??

    I'd let them figure it out on their own. Chickens dislike change. If they won't go in the coop by dark, then of course you are going to have to force them.
