I have had 5 chickens for the past several years. I let them out of the coop and run everyday to run around the yard and as they should each night they come home to roost and I close them up. We just adopted 5 chickens from my sister. She gave us her coop and A frame run. One chicken is getting bullied a bit (she made the mistake of keeping this one seperated) with the move I reintroduced her and things are looking better but still a bit of pecking. With the small run and number of chickens I want to let them out to explore the yard. My question is do I need them to get used to the new surroundings before I let them out or will instinct bring them back home in the evening...and will they go into the right coop? They have to be bored out of their minds. My chickens happiness and behavior has improved so much since I let them run. Thanks for the help.
