    Here is a picture I just took of the chicken and duck coop after the snow yesterday, they were out in the sun and have all now gone inside to stay warm.[​IMG]

  2. How much snow did you get? We got about 20 inches.

    We only got 10in here in mid michigan, but with the north wind and a farm field across the street from the house we got about 4 feet in the driveway.
  4. Ugh! I'll bet that was fun to clean up!

    Guess I won't complain about the 6" we received a couple of weeks ago. I don't envy you chicken keepers with all that snow. Hang in there!
  6. My chickens don't seem to like going in the snow. I shoveled it for them, but they still don't like it. They stand in the doorway looking.
