In the Brooder
- Oct 12, 2018
Hello. I have a small farm in my backyard with twelve chickens (six juvenile, six fully adult layers.) Our fence is secure all around our yard, but we have a wooden gate with big gaps. I didn’t have any issues until yesterday, when I found them on the front lawn. I tried to block the holes, but they knocked it down today and got out again. They live in a temporary 4x4 tractor with a small door I can open for them to let them pasture until they are big enough to go into the big coop we built. We have been looking for about 2 hours with no luck. Is there anything I can do? Are they gone? Or will they come back? Please help! (UPDATE: We found the rest of the chicks and now we are baiting them into the backyard.
