We just a nice layer of snow, and the chickens refuse to go outside. I put a plastic sheet down in their run after a couple hours of them refusing to go outside. They still are inside. I cleaned the coop this morning, so there isn't much "waste" in there. In 1 or 2 hours I will be heading over to TSC (Tractor Supply Company). I'm going to get things like feed, bedding, and oyster shells, but I want to give them something they can scratch at in their coop. Since they are my pets, I don't mind buying them meal worms, crushed corn, scratch, or anything that could be consitered a "treat".
