so today was the first time that my dh and my son and I all worked all day on the same day. Usually one of us is home for at least part of the day. My chickens had food and water before I left but I left them in the run since I would be gone all day. I just got home and they were in my neighbor's yard, apparently they can jump the fence although they've never done so before. I called the girls back and they came running so I just put them over the fence, and the roo follows wherever the hens go, so he's back too. Question is, now that they know they can do it, will they continue to do it? Two of my hens fly up into my maple tree on occassion but always come down when I call them, so I knew they could fly, but they've never gone over the fence before. My neighbor is a nice guy, but he's got a 90 pound black lab and he shouldnt have to check for my chickens before letting his dog out, so if they're likely to do it again, I have to enclose the top of their run. Anybody know if they are likely to repeat their little walkabout?
