I've seen other backyard flocks roam yards when I drive home from work and I would like to start supervised free ranging for my flock of 10. They will be 17-19 weeks tomorrow. I would like to give them at least an hour before sundown of free ranging before going back to the coop at night. I have a fenced up yard and all my dogs are in dog runs with an open top. Here's what I have: 1 White Rock 1 Buff Orp (unkown boy or girl yet) 2 Black Sex Link 1 Production Red/RIR Roo 1 RIR 1 Delaware Roo (ordered a girl, came out to be a boy) 1 GLW 2 Game Hens (rescued from someone who didn't want them anymore, really didn't want to take em in but I did ) https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/814606/cant-figure-out-these-birds/10 My worry is the game hens since they are very skittish and trust me very little. My neighbors behind me have a large dog but I think the fence is about 6' high in the back and I have 8' fencing on the sides of the property. Front of the house has rock wall/wrought iron fencing about 5" tall. Should I go for it and see how they do? I have alfalfa leaves and rolled oats to 'lure' them back in when it's getting dark.
