we have snow now in michigan, the kids and the dogs are happy. this is our first winter with the chickens and i was wondering if we should keep them in the coop 24/7. right now, we put them in the coop at night with a heat lamp and let them out in the morning. the coop will cool down during the day because the door is open, but does that matter? the chickens are walking around in the run and it didn't seem to bother them walking around in the little bit of snow that we have. so should i keep them cooped up all winter?
