Are my chicks free-range or pastured? I used to have them out during the day, but now that my garden is in full bloom, we've put them back in their coop. Once we fix the fence around our garden, we'll let them back out. Their coop/run is pretty large and they have enough room to run and stretch their wings. They're sitting on dirt, so they can take dirt baths. We are constantly throwing in grass clippings, huge piles of leaves and lots of leftovers from our food. Their coop/run is all open, so they get the warm sunny and fresh breezes through it. They can even munch on crickets, mosquitoes and other bugs. We live in the So. Cal desert and charge $4.00 per dozen.
