    I dont lock mine, and i dont typically worry when free ranging.
    I'd rather them die being happy and not being restrained, then live long being miserable.

    That's funny. My run free most of the time also. But when time for bed comes, they only have one place to go. Yeah, you guessed it. They walk in the run gate with the wings up to show they give up. Walk up the ladder and go in the jail. But they know their safe, get 3 square meals, plenty of fresh water, plus time in the rec yard every day. So to them I don't think it's to bad. But for some reason I don't understand, when they're out in the rec yard they follow me around. Weird.
