Hey everyone, new to BYC and new to chicken raising! I picked up a used coop two weekends ago and just got my 3 chickens yesterday from a buddy who was raising them for me. This is a new adventure for me and I'm really looking forward to the fresh eggs. My original plan was to free range the chickens, as I have a fairly large fenced in backyard and plenty of bugs for them to eat. I prepared the backyard for them today, patching up any holes and cleaning out overgrowth. Unfortunately, as the sun started to go down the chickens took to roosting and started climbing on top of places they don't belong! They got on top of my 6ft tall privacy fences. Luckily, I was able to push 2 of them back into the yard instead of getting loose into the neighborhood streets, but one jumped into the neighbors yard. That was a first for me, having to explain to a neighbor my chicken was in his yard and then proceed to chase it around his backyard. So... from now on they will live in the coop! That has raised a question for me. Will the coop's run be enough for them? I hate to keep them contained, but they can't be trusted!
