My flock, 15 BR's, 5 weeks old. Our run is not finished, but my guys and gals want to go out so bad....I feel horrible...they follow me to the door, every time I am out there doing chores...a "play pen" wouldn't work, in the event of an escapee or two, as I couldn't catch them. They run way faster than me, fly very high too, or would if they were outside...and no adult chickens to teach them. We are very rural and I am back by tree's, woods, and lots of brush and blackberry bushes too. Tons of predators, but I have only seen a hawk over head, during the day time, the others come out mostly at night. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I might be able to let my chicks out, without a play pen,( they are very smart and great escape artists) and be able to get them back in the coop with the above named issues? I sooo need this run to be finished!!! Was hoping this week-end, but it aint gonna happen... I really hate the thought of going through another week of them being stuck in their coop. Been two weeks, and they are getting antsy to be out! Thank you!
