Hi All, I've had my chickens in my backyard in the Bronx, but I've just moved them to my country house in upstate NY. I have built a nice hen house for them and a run, but I'd like them to free-range. I let them out, but they want to free range in my garden and my wife's flower beds, among other locations. OK, I know all about movable cages for them, but I don't like keeping them cooped up during the day. I also wonder how to get them from the hen house to any caged in area that I will set up. (My plan at this point is to use portable fencing--electric, but I'll start out without using the electricity, just the fencing.) So I'm asking if anybody has come up with a good plan to keep the chickens in a fixed hen house and run, but to keep them during the day in portable fencing? Also any valuable experience using electric fencing...do I need to electrify it if I'm only using it during the day?
