Hello! So this spring I've decided to start free ranging my flock! I live on a large farm in a very rural area but have kept the birds in a large indoor/outdoor coop due to fear of predators (we have many wide open spaces and birds of prey, plus foxes at night). I'd like to give the hens full opportunity to free range all throughout the day on fresh grass and by letting them roam just seems like the best option. However, I do have a few questions. The hens are older and have never really had the ability to free range without confinement so I'm worried exactly how to transition them to be comfortable without protection and ensure they come back at night (they aren't the type of chickens you can just pick up and be friendly with, they'd give more than a chase so I don't think I'd be able to catch them and just put them in the pen at night). Any advice would be wonderful I'd prefer not to build fences (as I don't clip my birds wings I don't think they'd stay in any fencing to be honest), and I know I may take a loss from free ranging them, but any way to minimize those losses and how to transition them would be great. Thank you!
