OK so my birds were able to free range and did very well untill a neighbor kid was calling them over to an ajascent (sorry spelling) property and then being mean to them. One ran into a yard where a dog is chained and well we lost one. After this I asked the boy not to call them up with food in your hand and then kick them when they peck you. Anyways he got mad and called the police after calling them over by the dog again and told them we already saw one get killed and dont want to have to see it again. I heard him saying here chicky chicky like 4 minutes before the cops came banging on my door asking me to get the chicken that got loose. This boy has had the police called to his house numorous times. oh and I have asked the boy on several occasions not to feed them cause I did not want them going up into other yards. We have 3 acres of dence woods and the chickens were always very happy in the woods. OK not to rant but that is the background. So I build a very big run for them. It seemed like they were getting used to it at first but now If I do not give them a treat to destract them while opening the gate they all try to get out of just peck the crap out of me. One acttually got out walked around the outside of the run and then came right back in. I am not sure what to make of their new behavior? Does anyone have any pointers for me. I have hung a treat ball wich I fill everyday. They have bails of hay that they love to tear apart and I take them crickets and let them catch for a treat. Anyone know if they will adjust?
