So I want to move them into a fenced area and fenced field with a barn and my goats, donkeys and cows. I want to build a new coop since I now know what I want in a coop and it's a bit different than 6 years ago when we built this one. But the new location is only 100 yards from the old one. They will be able to see the old one. Will the chickens fly over the 4.5 ft fence to return to their old coop? Will they leave the fenced area to run for my house since that is still in sight as well?
I can move the old coop and build something for the ducks if needed. Is moving them 100 yards even possible period?
