Can I train chickens to stay home/ or off the porch/ out of a garage/ out of the neighbors flower/ off the road without a fence. They are flying out of their coop I would love free range chickens & a duck. I have trained dogs & cats even barn cats who at first didn't even let me touch them. I heard of people training birds. Is It possible to train chickens not to go certain places? I have shrubs, lots of activites in the yard I'd like them to stay to look though lots of shade or sun I live on about 1/2 an acre But would like them to stay on about 1/4 acre I have chase them back with the broom swinging Is this worth trying?
