Not knowing a whole lot about chickens I planned to free range them in my yard which is about 1/4 acre of fenced in chain link...bad news is that the barn where the coop is in not inside the fence, from the nearest gate to the coop is at least 100 feet. Being outside the fenced in area to free range isn't an option as my neighbor's dogs are often seen around our fence. I really don't want to keep them penned up, any way to train them to walk to and from the coop to the inside of the gate morning and evening? They are 5 weeks now. We live in FL so they could free range pretty much all year.
