    I have 7 chickens.
    Last year I had 3 but 1 died coz of the cold.

    I am very worried if I loose one of the chickens, can you please help me.
    I would not like the snow to get in my coop this year and I would like to be prepared for when it snow's.
    Can you give me some idea's to stop the snow for coming inside.

    If your run is covered on the top but snow is getting in on the sides, go to Walmart or somewhere like that and buy the vinyl clear shower curtains and attach them to the run to keep the snow out. You can take them down in the Spring. They are pretty inexpensive and will keep the snow out and some warmth in. Just be sure you keep enough space uncovered to allow air circulation.
