This stems from a question my daughter asked me. She asked how long our 10 chickens would live if we let them go in a patch of woods in the field behind our house. I told her 1-2 days. Dogs and other animals would feast. Now my question. How long would 1000 (50 roosters) chickens last if they were dropped in the same spot? Would they breed? Is it possible to have a flock of "wild" chickens? Just curious.
