Finally got the courage to let my birds out for a while. I have a lot of vacant lots around me so I figured they would be OK. They had a blast. And all did come back to roost at dusk. Looks like that may be a daily or every other day thing. At least the coop and run got cleaned without having to shoo they away. We did have a dog problem in the early summer so I'll have to watch out for that. But so far so good.
