We are planning our first coop and I have a question about the run. We are planning to incorporate part of the woodshed for the coop. My problem/question is that we get dumpings of snow off the roof that would effectively shut the run off from the coop in times of great snowfall (pretty common here). the coop will be 48 sq. feet, and I only plan on about 6-8 hens. (I do see how that chicken math goes, however). Will the girls be happy to stay inside for a couple months or should we try to come up with something else? I could clear a path outside the run and let them free range for a few hours, as the run will be full of snow even if they could get to it. Any thoughts would be appreciated. BYC people know so much- thanks.
