Just in the past week or so my girls have found the neighbors across the road have grape vines Thankfully the neighbors are cool with chickens. The house behind them in the woods also has chickens that just end up in their yard. Apparently their yard is the chicken party spot. I pretty much have the predator situation taken care of and was thrilled to be able to free range the girls again. Now this. If I do my crazy-lady-treat-call they come flying, but of course I don't want them to cross the road in the first place. I have neighbors who will speed past my kids on bicycles so forget about them slowing down for a chicken. I hate that feeling like I have to hover over them at every moment. I will chase them back up into the yard but they will eventually wander back. Are there any statues or anything that may deter them from going near the road? Like an owl? I'm willing to drag the garden hose down there to keep them away, but will they learn or will they come to associate me and the garden hose with the edge of the road and still wander over if I'm not right there? Chickens are worse than toddlers!
