    Hey guys,
    I need help on keeping my chickens in my yard while they're free ranging. They always seem to wonder into my neighbors yard. I don't want my neighbors getting angry and hurting one of my chickens so how can I keep them in my yard? I've got alot of acres but they just wanna travel to other people's yards.


    Thanks,
    Vannah

    There is only one way to keep them from wandering... fence in an area for them. It doesn't have to be a big, expensive fence, maybe just some poultry mesh on metal T stakes around their coop area. I would definitely do something to keep them home, not everyone will appreciate them showing up in the yard. I don't want my neighbor's dogs or other animals in my yard so I make sure I keep mine on my property as well.

    Okay thank you. I'm gonna start building them a new movable fenced area tomorrow afternoon after school to fix this problem I just hate fencing them.
