Enlarging this shot clearly shows no outdoor access behind building number one. There is a very small fenced-in area (possibly using cattle panels) behind building number two, with an open gate, and no birds out. There is some kind of waterer or feed container that does not look like one that chickens can typically access. This would lead us to believe that some other species of livestock has been, in the past, confined to this area.

Update:
The day the aerial photos were taken, July 8, 2014, there were perfect weather conditions for organic livestock to be outdoors—sunny with a high of 77° and no precipitation. There was about ¼ inch of rain recorded in the previous week.
