They used to just stay next to the run under sone baby pines but now they fly all over and even sometimes venture into the woods.
But today they looked bored so figured why not. And I'm terrified.
It's not even so much the predator aspect since it's mid day as much as it's me worried they're going to go into the neighbors or that I won't catch them. But they seem to stsrt to head back at night.
Maybe if I let them out more I will relax? Or maybe I can set up a fence so they can't go to the neighbors?
It's annoying too because I wouldn't care if they went in the woods anywhere else, the woods on our property say, but they always head towards the neighbors. And right now I'm in eating yogurt and typing this instead of watching them like i usually do and I'm worried where they're going to be when I check in a second.
Am I just a worry wart or am I right to be worried?
Also the neighbors hate our dog or at least hate how he used to go on their property so it's kind of like well what are they going to think of 8 chickens?... you know?
ALSO. Unrelated but their poo always looks kinda big/weird and today somebody's is runny and yellow-y/brown. What is that? AND they turned down worms. Vents all look fine and all active and whenever I see weird poo I put DE in the coop and run. They were getting a ton of corn and BOSS but haven't at all lately as its warm. Though i have been giving them piles of dirt. But otherwise its layer pellets and water.
I know this is unrelated so i may make a separate thread.
They're turning 18 weeks Monday
