Heard a few folks have had problems especially with bantams and breeds with feathered feet. Hardier breeds i would let have the option of going out but anything delicate i would keep in.

Hello,my bantams are waiting to get out every morning but not in the last two days and who could
blame them with near a foot of snow. Iv put the food and water inside with warm porridge.Dont neglect to feed the garden birds.
