    If they have a coop and run, they will get used to staying in the run all day.

    Mine generally forage all day, but stay in the run when I am not at home. They do just fine.

    I have ten hens and a total of six runs.in the evenings they are crowed around the door.pushing each other out the way to be the first one out the door.i call them my little zombies.I let them free range in the evenings.and sometimes it may be only fifteen minutes.but it seems to satisfy them.
