With the falling temps and the first possible "winter storm" forcast for the weekend, I figured it was about time. So, I put in the windows, stacked 8 bales of straw in the storage part of the coop, washed, plugged in and filled their winter waterer. (heated pet bowl) And, voila! Coop is ready! Pop door is still open to the run (which is closed at night). I'll start closing that when it gets really cold or they show no interest in going outside. Whichever comes first. They're not too thrilled with snow. Last year, though, I spread alfafa hay on the snow and then they'd go outside. I also put some on the floor of the coop - they definitely enjoyed scratching around in it! Happy winter, everyone!
