and now, the hens (6 months) have started to take up residence on their patio! Ok, I love my neighbors and they love my ladies, but I think my girls love their food scraps more then their chcicken food? They are hanging out a bit too much on their property next door. They (the neighbors) don't mind, but the problem is getting them locked up at night. We have coyotes who will track them down at night if I don;t lock them in the coop. So, will telling my neighbors not to feed them help? Should I take away their feeding tray and hand feed them (spread the feed out) in the am and pm (no free feed all day?). Will that help getting them home? Need suggestions??
