    I bet. Do you lock them up at night?? Or do they free range all the time??

    ETA: Been thinking about getting some and I know they recommend cooping them up for a few months so they won't run off! Is this what you do??

    Barred babies,

    I don't have any regular coops everything here free ranges and roost in the trees, in the greenhouse and i built several run under roost that the chickens use.
    I raise everything here from babies except a pair of peafowl i recently got so everyone knows where home is.

    i don't have any close neighbors for my birds to bother except my daughter and she lives on our land across our easment this will be hers some day she loves it here and loves to have the birds visit.
