Hello everyone! I have a question (I suppose thats rather obvious). From my little chick order in May I have Mary and Edith. Edith is a BO rooster, Mary is a Buff Brahma hen. They are 27ish weeks old. About four or three weeks ago I purchased two more hens to give Mary a break. Mabel is an Easter Egger, possibly about 19 weeks old. Cora is a Rhode Island Red, who is laying eggs so she must be around 22 weeks. I really want to let them free range around my yard- I let Mary and Edith do so before these new girls came along. But Mary and Edith also come when I call, so I could put them away whenever I wanted. Its Cora and Mabel I'm worried about. Here are my reservations 1. On the first day I got Mabel she somehow escaped and ran far away for about three days until I tricked her into returning to the run. I don't want a repeat of all the stress and worry. 2. I have some scratch in a cup, and when I shake it Mary, Edith, and Cora come running, but Mabel is a little scared of me and timid so she doesn't respond. So if I needed to go, I would have to leave all four of them out and I don't want to do that. 3. Even if Mabel and Cora don't run away, they previously free ranged all day long at their old home, only visiting the coop at night. They also lived on a humungous farm. I live in a tiny little yard, with no barrier between mine and my neighbors. And my neighbors probably don't want to put up with Edith's crowing and adventures in their flower gardens 4. I don't want something to spook Mabel and make her run away to her home where she stayed for those three days 5. I'm scared... If anyone has any tips or reassurances, please do comment below. Thanks in advance!!!
