I have started to let my chickens free range again.... I was afraid they'd fly away so I kept them in the coop but we clipped their wings so I am letting them out again. We only have 1 layer so far but she has laid at all times of the day, real early to real late. She also has not taken to using the nesting boxes and I don't want to search for eggs. What is your suggestions for letting them free range? Should I just let them and expect to go searching for eggs, should I keep her contained to the coop until she lays for the day (assuming she will lay) and let the other 4 girls out to free range? I've done everything suggested to get her to use the nest boxes and she hasn't yet so I am not thinking she will run back into the coop to use them. I'm at a loss since I am new to chickens!
