I was reading another thread where a couple of posters stated that chickens should only be allowed to free range while under supervision. I was curious if this is the view held by others here. Personally, my birds free range all day while I'm at work. I understand that there is a chance for loss, but, for me, the benefits of free range outweigh the risks. If they didn't free range while I was away, then they wouldn't get a chance to free range at all during the winter months, and only briefly during the summer months. Anyway, I was just curious as to others views on free range and supervision.
