My chickens have learned a new trick...how to uproot part of their fenced enclosure. As a result they go running around the yard. This is not truly a problem, except for the fact that they only seem to understand how to get out of their pen and not back into it at night.
For the past two evenings, the escapees have been congregating outside their pen, trying to get back into it...so they can go into the coop for the evening. I have had to go out and catch or shooo them back into an opened gate.
It is more of a headache than anything else. Plus, I worry about them being left out at night, should I go off to a movie or on a short trip. Most of them are totally clueless about the dangers that exist outside their pen.
