How do you teach to free range? We have 27 five week old chicks. Today DH put a few in a pen over the compost heap to let them pick it over for a bit, and on the way back, we let a few walk behind us... They happily followed me back to the coop (I took care of them in the early days as DH was away, so they are my babies), but the two DH had were kind of lost. So.... my question is, if you free range your peeps for any period of time during the day, without a hen, how and when do you start?
