How far will chickens wander from their coop? If I let them out all day or just in the afternoon? I will have 6 birds. I live in a small town with a dirt road. (Not a city tract home) you could put another home in between me and my Neighbors houses and 3 side of my yard is surrounded by 100' of steep hill (all up hill). I have 5' fenced in yard which I know they will fly over it. I am going to go ahead and make a pen just in case a neighbor complains. But a friend told me they won't wander to far from my yard.
