One of my reasons for chickens was for them to eat bugs, flies all the nasty little insects..... Well the insects are HERE. As of right now, my horse and goat live together, and the chickens are next door. THe chickens can't do the best job, without getting into the horse pasture and barn area. Please tell me about your experience with this. I took three big girls into the pasture area this evening, and they went to TOWN on the bugs in the dirt, one girl was catching flies in the air....... I want them to have access ALL day, but I'm worried the chickens will get hurt by accident. The horse and goat couldn't care less that the chickens are around - but how fast will the chickens move if the horse gets a fright and runs???
