    Well mine don't "range" very far away from the coop! LOL They have 2 acres to roam but they have a radius of probably 60 feet from the coop. They need to get to work and eat them bugs!!!

    I've seen my flock more than 10 acres away from the coop, but for the most part they hang around in the chicken yard, the garden and once around the outside of the yard fence every day. They start foraging and just go where their beaks lead them.
