Hi all, hoping you have some advice. I have 3 chickens that are about 22 wks old/5 months old. They have been happily free ranging in our back yard. We have 5-6" wood fence all the way around our yard. Our back yard is a pretty good size for being in the city, about 2000-3000 sqft? And there is lots of fun grass/dirt/plants/mulch for the chickens to enjoy. Suddenly the other day I heard a commotion outside and ran out to discover 2 of them were on top of the fence checking out the neighbor's yard! I ran to get some mealworms and called them back and they came flying/running back to me in the yard. We promptly decided to clip one wing on each chicken. Which seemed to work for 5-6 days. Yesterday afternoon I heard a commotion, and one chicken was up in one of our trees!! About 5-6" off the ground right next to the fence. So I shooed her back down. All 3 chickens were NOT happy with me, and vocalized and squabbled a LOT about that one, lol. In your experience do you think the girls will get heavier and this will be less of a problem as they put on more weight? Should I clip their 2nd wing too? It was my first time clipping chicken wings but I am a long time indoor parrot/cockatiel owner so I am experienced with wing clipping so I know how to do it. They look pretty fat right now and their clipped wing is comically small in proportion to their bodies so I was pretty amazed that she was still able to get up that high! The breeds are 1 Barred rock, 1 Rhode Island Red, 1 Black Australorp. They are being freeloaders and have not laid eggs yet!
