I have my little flock of 8: 3 hens and 5 pullets "free ranging" in their run. The run is all dirt, amended with compost, and lots of stuffs. They scratch in it all day long and don't eat as much of their feed. They dig out nice big juicy worms and whatever bugs and stuff they like. If they are mostly doing this and not eating so much of their feed, is this considered free ranging? Or do they need more variety, more space and more grass in order to be called free ranging?
