Hello.  I've been a long time lurker and finally signed up.  I've been looking into getting backyard chickens for three years now and finally did it two months ago.  I have a Rhode Island Red, Barred Plymouth Rock, and a Barnevelder. It's been a lot of fun raising them so far. I've also recently learned how to clip their primary feathers so that they won't fly up onto a 5 foot fence and start squawking that they can't get back down!

Welcome to Backyard chickens.  I enjoyed reading your intro.  Yes, chickens do that .  Some are able to fly well enough  to "jump ship," anyway. Sometimes it also helps to have  sections of wire or wood barrier  around the top of the fence that is angled inward, so they can't sit on the fence.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Chickens are little rascals, sort of like ornery 3 year olds with wings. Hope the wing clipping helps!
