As we learn and gain more experience with animal husbandry, our chicken keeping skills and techniques grow and change. When we began keeping these beautiful birds we let them free range around the property, which quickly became problematic, with the poop in the driveway and the constant eating of the garden starts. After trying many different locations for the flock we finally created a very large, permanent run for them on our south facing slope. There they have lots of room to forage, as well as, a safe shelter for them at night.
