We have a few chickens that we raised from chicks last year. This summer we started allowing them to free range during the day which makes them VERY happy. However, they are getting bolder and roaming further during day than I prefer. I don’t mind them roaming towards the back of the property…but the front of the property may be an issue. They happily put themselves up each evening in their coops.
Can I deter them from certain areas? Chicken proof fencing by the road isn’t economical for me. Do I need to keep them in their coops a little more during the day?
