I have read some posts on this topic but thought I'd start a fresh one. I plan on having a coop and run for my chickens, but want to free range when I am outside. I have never owned chickens before, and just ordered 10 RIRs and 5 Americanas, all females, to be delivered April 13th. I'm excited and have everything but the feed ready to go! My question is, when I, and my children, are outside and let the chickens out, will they stay close to us or will I have to worry about them running off? Also, what are some tricks to get them back into their coop once we go inside?
