    I have been reading about day range chickens. I understand you use electric netting and move them around every couple of days. Does anyone have any advise/ideas/suggestions on doing this? I would be starting in the spring (too much snow now) on a good sized piece of pasture. I liked this idea better because it sounds cleaner and more pleasant for the chickens.

    Reminds me of using a chicken tractor, only on a bigger scale. Could be a pain in the tush though, moving that fence....But if you can't let them free range, it definitely sounds like something that they would enjoy....
