    Hi,

    My Americanas are still flying up to roost on the 6 ft chain link fence around the run. I have clipped one wing on each chicken, should I be clipping both wings?

    Thank you

    Well if they can still fly what else can you do?

    Only clip one wing (the left one) clipping both will just balance them out again and they can fly higher. If you really dont want this raise the fence of put several strips of wire up so they can land on it.
