I have a rather large "shed" I think it was horse stalls originally. It's closed in on 3 sides, open to the southeast. I was thinking of using that for our roost and laying area. And letting the chicken be totally free range, as the rest of our animals are. Most people I've talked to don't like the idea, I am being told the need to be cooped. I know of 3 neighbors let their chickens roam free and tbey love it. We are way out of town, no restrictions. I don't see the harm! Any advice?
