Let the girls out for a stroll while I cleaned the bedding and nest boxes in their coop.
I had snow-blown a path out to the coop, as well as a circular path in front of the coop for the dog to run around on. This worked out well at keeping the girls from foraging too far. They like to go behind the coop but I don't like it. Although, there is plenty of room, enticing leaves and underbrush to search in, it's also wooded and often times they're hard to keep an eye on. I don't want them in the flower beds but would prefer they stay in front of the coop.
