    Hey all!
    I’m kind of new to raising chickens...about a year and a half into it. We free range our chickens, which has proven to be quite sad at times. But the chickens sure do love their freedom to explore. We have mostly heritage breeds and currently have 23 babies and 6(as of this morning) layers.

    Hello StonelickValleyFarm.
    Welcome to BYC.
    Yup, free ranging can be very sad for us, but as you've noticed, the chickens love it.
