Orpingtons, Rhode Island Reds, and Rocks are cold tolerant. 

They are happy in the snow, but don't leave them out too long or they could get frostbite.
31 degrees? 

Feels just right for a morning stroll through a "winter wonderland".
Our coops just need a tarp or a moving blanket to ward off the worst. 

A clamp-on heat lamp with just a 75 Watt bulb works pretty well on the coldest days. 
Remenber to break the ice on their drinking water every morning...

   Don't you love these photos?
​   The beauty of nature...
   God created them all.   : )  
Suggestion: Get your chickens accustomed to a new coop BEFORE bad weather comes. 

They get confused at new surroundings and could freeze if they don't get inside at night.

Well, do our goats
enjoy the snow?
I'm afraid they haven't made a decision yet
We LOVE to watch a group of chickens explore our back yard on snowy days.
Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.                                                                                                                                             Psalm 51:7   
They lay fewer eggs, but they do still lay in winter.

followed by a layer of clear plastic roof panel - the wave type.

This traps dead air between the layers, 
creating an insulated cover for the windows.
