I have 6 hens that are right at the age to begin laying. I let them out of their 10x10 run at about 10am and they run for the woods at the back of my property, which is about a 150' distance. Once there I won't see them again until about 5pm and they are in the coop by 6:30. I am debating building a large pen and keeping them confined. I just don't see them trekking all the way back to the coop to lay. Am I wrong? I could also move them into one of my pastures so they have higher grass to range in, but still build a pen. Any opinions would be appreciated.
