I've read the Leghorns go quite a ways sometimes. I think it depends on the chickens, partly. I have seven acres, but it is a narrow and long lot, so I kinda worry about that too. Anybody?

I am on 6 1/2 acres. My chickens will go to the far pasture when the horses are there. Often they follow me when I feed the horses or they are there when I come home from work. They stay near the house til they lay their eggs then go off exploring.
