We have free running chickens and for the most part the flock doesn't go far. 1 of them, our 4 month old Roast, goes just about anywhere. It was funny at first but then yesterday she was brought back to us by the kids across the street. She apparently wanted to hang out with them over there. She crossed the street!!! Is making an enclosed run the only option? We have locked her in the coop and a fenced in area adjacent to the coop for about a month and her wandering got worse! I would love to keep them free ranging but not if some one will get hurt.
