Moving Chickens

I try to move the areas the chickens are in at least twice a week.  It is fairly easy to just move the electronet fencing in a open grassy area and the chickens will stay contained.  However if there is a tree I have to take down most of the fence and then had to spend time rounding up the hens.

In a “Duh” moment I realized they follow food.  So now I move the fence and coop and leave a 10′-20′ opening in the fence and then pull out the food.  This shows how far the chickens are willing to follow me to get food.  They will cluster around my feet so densely that I have to shuffle walk to keep from stepping on a chicken.
