    Have had my hens a week now and have only witnessed them coming out of the house briefly a couple of times. I've been bribing them with food. Is it normal for them to be so scared of coming out?

    Is there snow on the ground? My chickens absolutely refuse to go out when there's snow! [​IMG]

    Weather has been pretty cold but no snow. Freezing at night but not during the day.
