We are in the process of fencing my yard so I can let my chickies out of the run during the day. Lots of dogs around here so fencing is a must first. Im wondering however HOW one gets them trained to go back to the coop at night? How do they know? I havent gotten them to where they will come to me evne tho I take them goodies and greens and feed them etc. They run if I try to pick them up still. They are not layig yet however and are about 3 months old. What sayth the chicken whisperers on this subject? I dont want my chickies to run away or fly over the fence and get eaten. Oh and also, we have two hives of bees....How close can the coop and fence be to them? I would like to not loose my bees to hungry chickens eating them LOL.
