I have a precious little Rhode Island named Destiny. She is almost fully grown. Since she was a tiny chick she was always the most adventurous out of all my chooks. I can't for the life of me keep her in the backyard. I have never had this issue before. I have good sturdy tall fencing but she still manages to escape. I have clipped her wings but she can still fly extremely high. How can I stop this? My neighbours keep finding her in their yards and near the road. She once went missing for almost a week and then she appeared again by my front door. Every morning she escapes and then taps on the front glass door to let me know she's hungry or she wants to come in. She's the only one of my chickens that likes to come in to the house and she's the only one that holds her poop until she get's outside (she's only had one accident!). Actually now I'm not sure if I have a problem or just an extraordinary hen. Anyone else got a similar little bundle of feathers?
