    Cute story, good anecdotes. But, I was truly looking for information on how to keep chickens in the yard without a fence. Not much useful information here.

      With my experience of YEARS of trying to keep them in. There is really nothing else you can do except build a fence. a big one, because they can fly REALLY high.

    Build a fence? That's it? That's the way to deal with free ranging chickens?
    Gee, who could have thought that idea.

    ”How to free range better: build a fence”

    Didn’t really solve the problem unfortunately.

    Also couldn’t get past the grammar mistakes, sorry!

    Oh boy, you made me smile out loud! You have great perspective and humor and write what many are thinking in a humorous way. Chickens are little monsters!!! (but we love them) Yes, after all of the above we built a run then doubled the size of it 10 months later. I highly recommend adding toys to the runs too. (hang fruit or veggies). Thank you so much. I hope you try your hand at another article. I'd like to read more of your chicken stories.
    PS. Your chickens are beautiful. :)

    Unfortunately seems to be more of a story rather than giving how to information.
