This is to all those who have in the past OR are currently free ranging their flock, all day or at least mostly. Please share your experiences and be honest about your losses. I'd like to know how many birds you've lost and the % of time they spend free ranging. ( For example, from a flock of 10, lost 2 in 5 years, free range allday on weekends, 4-6 hours a day during the week) Thank you BYCers!! FYI, I have a flock of 4 for a year, about 50% of their lives free ranging, no losses(yet) We live where there are lots of HUGE trees, outbuildings, barns and they have lots of shelter while they roam.
