For the backyard chicken keeper, the meaning of free ranging is simply allowing your flock to roam outdoors wherever they want, without boundaries, from dawn till dusk. That might be on acres of land or it might be simply allowing them to have the run of your garden or back yard.
many of us need to protect them from predators, for example. And that may involve taking the decision to fence them in.
if a fox decides to attack, you’re unlikely to be able to prevent him
There is no right or wrong way here. It’s whatever works best for you and your chickens. Having the information below means you can make an informed decision
free ranging your chickens has advantages for them, and for you and your family.
main disadvantage of free ranging your chickens, of course, is predators
Egg bound’ means she has an egg stuck somewhere in her oviduct. The usual place is between the uterus and the cloaca. Sometimes you can even see it from the cloaca/vent.
Other effects seen from egg binding are vent prolapse
Passing large or odd-shaped eggs. The oviduct can only stretch so far, and a large or misshapen egg can get stuck. Malfunction in the reproductive system. Some hens are prone to problems and will lay odd or parchment eggs regularly – genetic issues. Double yolk eggs. These are larger than the usual egg and can cause problems. Malnutrition – poor diet low in necessary vitamins, minerals, and protein. Sedentary life or obesity – muscles become weak from lack of activity or being overweight. Premature laying – hens that are forced to lay before they are fully developed often develop binding. Elderly chickens – weak muscles and inactivity. Egg retention – if insufficient nest boxes are available, a hen will sometimes ‘hold’ her egg. Underlying reproductive tract infection. Severe infestation of internal parasites
How do you know when a hen is egg-bound? Truly, sometimes you don’t. As we know, hens are secretive about any illness or problems. If she can pass the egg herself, you may not even realize she had a problem.
Common symptoms to look for include:
Decreased appetite and drinking. Lethargic, sitting around, fluffed up. ‘looks sick,’ depressed. Shaky wings. She walks like a penguin – she will periodically stop walking and try to squat. Abdominal straining – you can see the cloaca (vent) straining to expel something. Tail pumping – her tail will pump up and down to expel the egg.
first three groups of symptoms to any chicken that is sick with anything. They will usually set off by themselves in a quiet spot. She will fluff the feathers out, and she may have her eyes closed like she’s taking a nap. These signs always bear watching.
