Free rangers taking over the yard......

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I love to let my chickens free range during the day, but I can't keep them off my deck and driveway.  Has anyone come up with ways to deter this?  We have 7 acres of field and woods and their coop is far enough away, but they prefer to hang out around the house.  Thanks!

Hose with multi-spray head set on JET!  They hang out there b/c their favorite human is seen coming and going from there.  

Jesus Christ is my pilot.

My husband of 41 years is my best friend and co-pilot.

Enjoying my gardens.  My flock are my garden helpers.

Breeding a winter hearty flock with small combs and colored eggs.

Favorite breeds:  Dominique and EE.  Hatching addict.

I train my dogs to chase them back where mine belong, it works for the most part, though I have to be outside for that, unfortunately you have to make your chickens fearful to come near your house in some way.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.
