    My hens chose to stay in the coop all day through the storm, pretty much. Their run is covered and I put plastic partway up around the sides in winter. It keeps out most of the snow normally, but this blizzard blew a lot of snow around and into the run anyway. We shoveled it out for them, but they still were not interested in going outside in the run during the storm, haha! So we made sure they had food and water inside the coop and let them ride it out however they preferred. Today they are back out in the run like normal. :)
