Hi All, I'm new to this forum, and trying to decide whether to keep some chickens (for eggs/pets) or a rabbit. We have a good sized backyard, part of which is enclosed by a six-foot high privacy fence. We have only one neighbor on the side whose yard is at quite a distance. We are also allowed to have chickens on our property. I'm envisioning the coop and run being placed on one side of the privacy fence. I'm in Massachusetts and we always have snowy winters, some more extreme than others. It is not uncommon for us to have 2 or more feet of snow blanketing the backyard in January and February. I have visions of the henhouse being buried in snow after a big storm. Has anyone else dealt with this? Thanks!
