My friend's Leghorns love snow but mine do not come out of their coop when it snows. She says it is because I have spoiled them (maybe!).

So.....do your chickens like snow? Any funny snow stories?

Mine have no problem with the snow or the cold for that matter. They want outside everyday even if it is only 5 degrees outside. It is 25 in the coop and they all still go out and walk in the snow, crazy girls. I wait till it's light out and warms up a little to let them out now that it's so cold. When I go to check on their water they are ready to go out and aren't happy when I make them wait.

She would need to post the pic. You can't enlarge a profile pic.

A little trick i learned from someone on here, put your mouse pointed on the picture and hold in "Ctrl" and spin your mouse wheel on top. that zooms in without distorting the picture

Hi, there is also a picture of Walter on page 14 of the "October Photo Thread" that is bigger and easier to see. He just got a new red holiday sweater yesterday. I will post that one soon!

Mine chicks must be weird; they still will not come out in the snow. Maybe they'll get used to it. Ha!

Here in Canada, I am up north around Edmonton, Alberta. Right now it is -6 Celsuis. We got an early snow. My birds don't go out. They look at the the snow but the moment they feel snow on their feet, they run back into the coop. Even my turkey tom won't go out if his feet sink into the snow. He will walk on the paths with me but that is it. They like eating snow though. Think most birds like doing that.
