    Today was the first time one of our 10 week olds flew out of the 4 ft high run. It was the bigger of the two Australorps and she was terrified. Donna has been gone for two weeks and wanted to see how big they had gotten. When she went out to look this morning she found the poor girl frantically circling the run trying to get back in. She called for me and I had very little trouble gathering the stray up. Poor little girl.

    Agreed Wingnut. We opted to clip thier wings and got them all done today.
    Wasn't too bad.

    Just remember only to clip one wing. If you clip both it wont do any good.
