I really hope you can, otherwise, I'm afraid I won't be able to have free range birds anymore. Our coop is about 500 feet, maybe less, away from our open garage where we park our cars. The coop is at the bottom of our driveway, meaning the doors open right out into the driveway. Behind the coop is our fenced in pasture field. We do have a small run attached to the coop for when we can't let them out. I've had this flock for two years now, and they are getting worse. Since it's cold, when we let them out, they come straight into the garage. They are digging huge holes in the gravel floor, and are just a pain! Anyway, I am starting a new flock, and am hoping there is a way we can train them, or encourage them, to stay in the pasture area, which is plenty big enough, and there are plenty of bugs and dirt to scratch in. I'll attach a picture, it's not the best because of all the snow, but it was taken from the doorway of the garage. Does anyone have any ideas????
