I llive in the country and I am going to let my chickens free range the farm yard. What is the best way to introduce them to free ranging and what is the best age. My chicks are only 6 weeks old so I know now is to early. I have a coop built, and I was going to make a temporary run for them. But I would really like to see them roam the entire farm yard. Also if your dog wants to eat chicken what is the best way to break them of it. By the way this is my first experience owning chickens!
