I have recently acquired three year old hens. I built them a nice roomy coop which includes space for them to walk about. I would like to let them roam about a bit in the yard in the afternoons or weekends when we are home. However with two dogs, a neighbors dog and one big cat I am a little afraid. I have never owned any chickens and I do not want to put them in any danger but it would be nice to let them wander around and be a little free. I am sure that most people who love animals have chickens, dogs, cats, etc. Is there a way that I get my animals to "all just get along" or am I stuck with keeping the girls in their cage.
