Good to know. As mentioned to ghostoffuffle, I'm cool with them exploring the woods. But if they can't get back, that's on them. The door closes at sundown.

My cousin has a lot more chickens, and she has done pretty well letting them sort it all out.

Chicks are cheep at any rate, and they grow pretty quickly.

Be prepared to start offloading extra eggs on friends and neighbors. Four chickens produces a pretty surprising amount of eggs.
