Dealing with escaped chickens

Closing off half the PVC chicken tractor run with round plastic lid.

I had a hen escape on me when I was moving the wheelchair chicken tractor to a new spot last night.

Next time I'll wait till they are all roosted before moving it long distances.

Today we developed a new procedure to herd escaped chickens back in to a new flap in the back while the rest of the flock is secure in the other half of the run.

I have a ten year old that is the chicken wrangler, he can catch 'em when nobody else can! I'll drop him off for the summer, he likes video games and peanut butter sandwiches...)
