Sorry if this is a dumb question... I am just not sure. I raised 11 pullets indoors until they were 8 weeks old. I then moved them out to a 10' x 12' chicken coop where they spent another week indoors only. They then got let out into the "chicken yard" which is about 30' x 30' or so... They are 18 weeks old now. I live on a 40 acre farm with no fence... So is it ok to let them out of the 'chicken yard' onto the rest of the property during the day? We are very rural and have very thick growth, with lots of coyotes and an occasional bobcat... plus coons possum etc... Would it be safe for them to be out during the day- like while we are working in the yard... or would it be better to keep them only in the chicken yard? I have 2 large dogs that would bark if anything came around as well. Thanks for your input!
