Chickens in the Woods

Free ranging on a beautiful spring day. Searching for bugs, eating grass, and creating beautiful and nutritious eggs! Life is good!

    Do they ever get caught in the underbrush? Do they get lost or do they always come back to their nest to lay eggs?

      I’ve never had a problem with the underbrush. And they come back at night, and are penned in. We are getting a good % of eggs right now, so I’d say that most are coming back to the nest to lay. I do have a hen or two that pop up with new chicks out of no where sometimes. Those girls obviously have hidden nests elsewhere. 🙂
