They hibernated for a few days then gave up and came out.

    Mine think snow is nuclear fallout. They’ll stay inside for weeks to avoid it.

    I THINK KERRI HAS THE RIGHT IDEA…LITTLE SNOW BOOTS FOR THE FLUFFY BUTT STAFF AND YOU CAN KNIT THEM, SUZANNE!
    SO GLAD TO HEAR YOU HAVE COME THROUGH THE WINTER TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS….AT LEAST THE FIRST OF THEM. AND CHRISTMAS WAS EVERYTHING ANYONE COULD HOPE FOR….WARM, WITH FOOD AND WITH FAMILY.
    YOU ARE BLESSED AS WE ALL ARE.

    What’s with the snow? Mine run around on the icy litter with no problem. But, let a little snow fall and they just stand there and look at it?? You’d think it was poison or something! Once in a while, one will get brave and walk out on it but that lasts for about one minute then it’s a race back to the bare spots. My “staff” reacts the same way!

    They think it’s the great chicken God, commanding them to get back in the house and lay that egg!

    This is the first year we’ve had chickens, so I kind of thought that was just our chickens who were unwilling to walk out in the snow! Glad to know chickens are just like that. Ours have a little insulated mini coop inside a bigger coop, so I think they feel like they go outside during the day anyway.

    It is 9* here and my girls want out they don’t care. There pretty little combs are getting frost bit. We have had snow for a while and they are ok with that too. Chicken tracks in the snow are pretty cute. :heart:

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
