I went out to check on my free range flock this afternoon and all I found around the coop was my roo and my two special needs hens, Lil' Bit and Lilith. The rest of the flock was nowhere to be found. I went searching. Our house and the coop sit right in the center of our 80 acres. I finally found my other ten hens at the fence line on the north end of the property, so roughly 40 acres away, happily scratching and pecking. To get there they had to go through the little woods, cross two wide open pastures and go around the pond. So now you know. They'll wander as far as their fat little legs will carry them.
