Forgot To Close The Chicken Run Gate

Forgot To Close The Chicken Run Gate
Please Rate This Article

Every evening I let my chickens out of their run for about an hour so they can browse around the yard.

During that hour I keep an eye on them to make sure they do not go too far. If they start getting towards the street I get them back to the yard.

I forgot to close to gate to the run last night.

This morning around 6 or 7 chickens got out of the run before I realized what happened and got the gate closed.

Well crap, now the chickens will be roaming wherever they want until this evening. If they get in the street I figure the neighbors will be like “keep your chickens out of the road.”

I will be glad when my wife and I get moved so I do not have to worry about this crap anymore.
