Hi there, I have 6 chickens of all different breeds. We live on a corner or a St. Rt. and a twp. rd. with about 4 acres of land for free ranging. Where do the chickens go? The neighbors, across the twp. rd. Yesterday I caught them over there eating grass. I count them and I'm like "there are 7 chickens" Wait, one isn't mine. So my chickens are going to the next neighbor east of us while the other chicken is going to the neighbor west of them and they are having a big chicken party!
I went into the yard where they could see me and yelled "Get your butts back here!" Boy did they ever come running fast! Today I did this 3 times. How do I break them of this? I'm afraid they will "catch" something from the other chicken or get hit. I want my chickens to be free range.
Any advice would be great, thanks, Kristy
