    One Wing or Two?

    So we've moved our 7-week old chicklets out of the well house into a "halfway house," which is basically a storage shed. This might prove to be a bad plan, we don't know yet. But for now, this is what we have. It's about 4' high and the roof slides back, which we thought would provide daylight...

    Flying chickens

    Hi y’all I have several Brown Leghorns. I know, I know…they are strong fliers. I just didn’t know How strong! I’ve clipped the flight feathers on Both wings and they STILL fly over my 50 inch fencing. About the only thing I can figure is to clip their primaries also. Any suggestions?? Thanks!

    Non-Flying Breed Suggestions?

    I need advice on breeds that don't fly well. I don't have very tall fences (currently 4' chain link), as yet, and my chickens can jump up and over. The funny part is they can't seem to figure out how to get back. I have to open the gate and chase them back through. The back fence is 6' wood...

    Clipping wings

    Our yard is enclosed by a wire fence about 3ft-3.5ft high. My concern is my chickens hopping over the fence into the neighbors yard. They haven't hopped over there yet, and there are plants blocking the way in most areas. So I want to know, if I clip their wings, how high can they still...
