Our free-range chickens don't seem to like snow. When it was just a dusting of snow it didn't even phase them, but now that the ground is covered it's a whole new story.
They wouldn't even come out of the coop until Wifey shoveled their run.
Our brave rooster wouldn't even attempt coming out of the run.
He just kept trying to force the hens out.
Finally one of the Grey Leghorns took it upon herself to give it a try, so he HAD to come out to show his bravery, but then ducked right back inside.
Some of the other grey leghorn's joined the first one and they had the whole 5 aces to themselves, and took advantage of a few clear spots to get in some greens.
The rest of the flock just watched from the safety of the run and missed out!
