:/My hen, a 6mnth black Australorp mix, and her 2yo Old English Game cock free range usually from 10 AM to dusk. BUT there are days when I want to get them put away before the sun starts setting. I don't want to be outside in the dark. Today is such a day. It's been raining all day, I'm slipping in the muck. How do you get 2 chickens under controll? They both run & turn opposite directions! I'm here alone, hubby is off accross the road, visiting his old pal & advisor. There was a coyote around the back here yesterday. I just want my chickens to go home!
