Chickens don’t like snow!
To get those fat chickens to dare take a step out of the coop when there is snow on the ground, you have to shovel out a spot so they can at least see a little brown. Then throw some of yellow and brown chicken scratch out to tempt them. They still hesitate. But eat they must because they still lay big brown eggs through the winter. All vacationers at Heavenly Hideaway Cabin and Cloud 9 Relaxation Home (near Biltmore estate) get a starter dozen of jumbo eggs when they come.
