    I allowed my 5 21 week pullets to free range in my beautiful backyard. My DH got tired of the mess they made and the poop on the patio..so he attached a 6ft. x 5ft. pen to their coop. They don't seem so happy. They seem bored. Will they get used to it and not realize they had so many different areas to hang out in?

    Yes, they are mad at you [​IMG], but have probably guaranteed their survival. Could you allow them supervised free range time when you are present to keep them out of trouble?
