We had a nice day yesterday and it was time to let the chickens out. You would think they would RUSH the door and trample each other to get out, but they really had to be coaxed out.

With free ranging in poultry netting should prevent that much damage.
With all the space they have access to after 5 weeks in the cramped quarters, you would think they would want to spread out, but they are still staying close together.
