Hi, I have not posted in a while so here it goes. I have a flock of 2 roosters, 5 hens and 3 chicks. The 2nd rooster was bought as a hen. They are kept in a 7x12ft pen with all walls/roof covered but the front and a side wall. Thier coop is a small box in the back. I was wondering if my flock could be free range or is it to small? I am thinking about converting the pen into the coop and add perches and more nests. Would I need to close it up completely inorder for them to use it at night? I don't want to be rounding them up with a net every night. Last year we had skunks get in the pen and kill some hensoar night so that's another worry. So as long as they return to the coop/pen before sunset it should be possible.
