Today while I was at work a blizzard rolled in, and now we have several inches of snow on the ground. I had left the run open so my 6 girls could could free-range if they wanted to, as there was no snow on the ground and it was a balmy 48 degrees this morning when I left. When it started to snow, I wasn't too worried as in the past the girls would always go back to their coop if the weather became icky. I got home around 3:30-4:00 (after putting my SUV in the ditch) only to find my girls huddled in a snowbank about 20 feet from their run. By the looks of it they had been there for quite some time. Of course I freaked out and immediately started grabbing them and putting them in their coop. I turned on a heat lamp, put a bowl of water, feed, and scratch in their coop too as I'm sure they haven't eaten much. I think one of my girls might have a bit of frostbite on her comb, but everybody seems ok. Why wouldn't they go back to the coop? They could clearly see it from where they were at. What else should I do for my girls?
