What are your tips for free ranging? I am hoping to get 30 chickens or so and maybe several ducks. I will not be penning them up during the day. They will have access to my 2 acre pasture and my neighbor's if they want to. At night I can lock them up in my barn, which I am going to predator proof a horse stall for them to stay in at night. What are your opinions on breeds for free ranging? I am really into all kinds of breeds but I would like somewhat good egg layers and I want brown, dark brown, blue, and white eggs. I also would like to have several ducks. What breeds would you recommend? Also, will roosters help in keeping predators away? During the day, how can I help the girls get away from hawks?
