We live off a dirt road with minimal traffic. Most of the traffic consists of huge logging trucks. I don't want to disturb the chickens!

All you need to do is obey your local setback regulations. :)

We've had a manufactured home placed on our property over the past couple months and while I did leave them shut in the coop the day they actually brought the house in, I've had them out in the pen for all the other operations -- including running trenchers down the hard-packed, gravel driveway on the other side of the storage shed that sits right next to the coop -- not 20 feet away from the chickens.

Chipotle, the California White who is always my most curious bird, decided to perch on the feeder shelter and supervise the electricians. :D

They better not lol! Maybe I should purchase more chicks. I was going to get eight to begin with, for two people.

If worried they can install security cameras. Or, put in place a fence... if you have a gun that always helps lol (not to hurt anyone but if someone tries to steal your chooks and you have a rifle they may take you more seriously) hopefully it doesnt come to that
