Chickens in the Yard

Yesterday I tried an experiment: I let the chickens out of their fenced in yard into the outside yard. This was mainly because the chicken yard was completely denuded of everything and plain bare ground. Now they can scratch and pick in the dead leaves and fresh grass and similar matter. They seem to like it, so I repeated it today.

There is a nearby road, BUT it is up a hill that they are unlikely to climb.

On account of a sale at the farm store, I now have an even 500 lbm (┬╝ short ton) of feed for them. This will last a few weeks @ least, probably closer to a month or more now that they are outside so much.

I guess this means they are free range?
