I thought that chickens were supposed to dislike snow! My chickens don't seem to even notice the snow...even when its snowing. They just act like its the middle of summer, I had to keep going and (in my mind) rescuing them today because it was snowing and they were just hanging out getting cold and all covered in snow. Are chickens intelligent enough to know when to go inside or should I be babysitting them and monitoring their outside time even more than I already am? Our chickens free range most days, but always have access to their coop, which isn't heated but it so far has stayed a nice temperature inside. And it is definitely out of the wind and snow, which is my worry more than the actual temperatures. I don't want our birds to get sick or hurt from being too cold, I thought if the coop was open, they would go inside if they felt cold. What do others do in the snow to keep their chickens happy and warm enough? And not getting wet from snow/drinking and then being out in the cold so they get frozen feathers.
