Can I let chickens free range durring the day on my 1 acre lot? We do have neighbors on next door on both sides, and behind us. One side is fenced, but the other has a mean dog, and behind us lives our uncle and I don't think he would mind if chickens walked through. Will the chickens stay fairly close to home? Will they come back in the evening or will I have to search all over the yard for them? Should I clip their wings? Do I have to stay outside with them while they are free? We technically live in town, but are the last property in city limits, there is a farm across the street from us, and we have wild turkeys roam though our yard all the time, as well as a large group of deer. I figured no on would be upset about a few chickens wandering around. I have never had chickens and know very little about them.
