Our chickens are free range. They were very content with roosting and dusting down by abn old barn we have. They've been down there for a couple months. Every morning We let them out of the coop and they would run down there and stay there until just before dark, then they would go back into the coop. No problem. Lately they have been exploring new territory. Getting closer to the house, which is no problem either, but they also are getting very close to the road. I've got too much area to fence in and I don't want to keep them locked in the coop all the time. Is there a way to train them to stay away from the road and to go back to the area by the barn? I treied coaxing them with treats and food. I even tried faking them out by banging on their empty food container, but they caught on that there wasn't any food there. The only treats they like is bread and we can't keep up with that. We would have to buy 1 loaf for them and 1 for ourselves. What can I do? I don't need any flattened out chickens!!!
