    Her wings are clipped. The original owner must have done it so she wouldn't fly over the fence. Yes, her feathers will grow back. My girls wings are clipped and I have to redo it every time their feathers grow back, which isn't long at all!

    I clipped the 3 hens and the rooster when I got them both wings so I really only have to do one?

    I would probably clip their wings in case! My girls could fly almost 5 feet!
    So I clipped their wings. It's up to u!
    Good luck!
