We live in the city and have a small flock of three hens that free range in our backyard. This is our first time with chickens and they are currently about 5 months old and just started laying. We love having them, but would love some help brainstorming solutions to poop management/space management. If you let you chickens range in your entire yard, how do you manage poop? We thought that we would fence off a small portion of the yard just for the chickens, but a three-foot fence does nothing to keep them contained. We clipped wings and they laughed at us, as I found them on the back porch after going out to run errands yesterday. I am starting to think that if we want part of our yard to be poop-free, we will need to enclose them in a run.
