I have 6 chickens 2 Americanas 2 White Rocks 2 New Hampshire Reds I have never had a chicken before, but here is my plan, I want to see if you chicken experts see any possible problems with it... I have a coop/shack up and ready for them with a little fenced in area to run around, the outside ground is a dirt floor because the coop and run are all under a huge pine tree where grass will not grow. My plan is to let them out of the run alot during the day in my big chain link fenced in yard, so they can forage for bugs and play in the grass (or whatever they do) I also dont want to confine them to the dirt floor yard too much because I imagine it will get all poopy (Is that a word?) and I dont know how I would clean it. Do you think my chickens could jump the fence? Please tell me what you think of this plan. Thank you friendly chicken folk!
