Do your birds like to be out ranging one minute and then back in the coop later? My "pasture" are is separated from where we have our coop and attached run. I want to let them in the yard but I have to gate them off because otherwise they will eat my veggie garden. Should their pasture area have some sort of shelter that they can take refuge in or a nest box (just in case)? I am wanting to put them out for a few hours a day in this gated area and let them forage and peck, and get their kitchen scraps, do they need feed out there as well, currently, this is just in the run. Thanks for your thoughts.
