my hens and roo are free range but lately they're out of control. going way into the woods, i think into my neighbors property, and near the road. i've been trying to think of something to try to get them to stop going far into the woods, when i'm working outside and see them there i chase them out. i don't think they would go into there w/out the roo(maybe its time for him to go) i really don't want to put up a fence by the woods, if at all possible. i was thinking a temp electric fence, but will that work for chickens? i may just have to build them a bigger run. i don't understand why they like the woods so much, i have a huge pasture that they can go in. anyway they're now in chicken jail for awhile, locked in the run.
