Naturally you should let chickens forage for food all over the place. However, there should be a coop where they can rest at the end of the day.

If you are planning on raising free-range chickens, here are a few pointers you should consider.

  1. First, start by prospecting the area covered by your land. If you are a small scale farmer, the backyard would suffice. Although the chickens roost in their coop at night, during the day they can roam around your land looking for food.
  2. The next step is getting the right birds for your farm. Basically, you should research more on what type of chickens can survive in the particular temperature and other weather conditions at your farm.
