We've had seven chickens (6 RIR and 1 OEGB) that have lived in a coop and run for many months now. However, we have seriously contemplated letting them free-range. Yet we do have a few questions, such as the roaming distance and liability. Are chickens likely to run into the road and cause accidents? Are we liable if they do cause an accident? What if they go to the neighbors and flog children? Do they roam that far to be a problem, or do they stay near the coop? We have land that is 350 square feet wide, and seven acres long, so it is a slim rectangular shape. We are relatively close to neighbors, and the coop is about five acres from a busy road. Thanks in advance.
