Yes. And no. They'll find something that interests them and go off to explore it at some point, guaranteed. But that's plenty of room for them to find bugs and plants and have a blast in. Not to mention hiding eggs!

i have 3acres and they stay and are very happy. Make finding eggs sometimes a bear, when they don't go to the nestbox, kinda like hide and seek

3 acres should be plenty of space. You should fence it so that predators can't get in and the chickens won't leave, though.
