I feel a bit sorry for my chickens having to live in their little run all day... I'm considering letting them out to walk about my garden during the day, its not amazingly big but much bigger than the run so would be nice for both of us. What I'm asking is what are the consequences i'll face..? Will my lawn get all horrible and ruined? Will all the plants my mum has planted for the last year be eaten or destroyed? Are they going to jump over a fence and get lost? Are they going to be eaten by a fox in the day-time? Thanks for answers in advance I suppose i should mention that I live close to woods but not really in the countryside and have a normal sized garden. It has 6.5ft fence on 2 sides and a smaller 4ft fence on one side with light plant cover on it aswell. Feel kinda stupid giving this information but better safe than sorry! Thanks.
