We have a two level lot. Our upper yard is fenced with wire fencing, our lower yard is 2 acres and is not fenced. Our 9 week old pullets have been free ranging for 4 days now and all has gone great. Today, I noticed two of them have gone under the fence and are on the hill leading down to our lower yard. My question might be silly, but I'm new to this and learning. Will they remember how to get back into the yard? Or will I need to rescue them? They can't fit through the fence holes, so I know for sure they went under somewhere. I don't mind them on the hill, tons of coverage from the pines....my concern is that they will forget how to get back.
