I have my five 6-8 week old chicks in a 12X12 area in my barn until they are big enough to be introduced to the "big girls" (my full size hens). The are fenced in on three sides by 4 1/2 foot stall walls, and on the 4th side by 36 inch chicken wire. I've tried to keep it interesting to them in there- lots of toys, places to hide, etc. The last 2 days a few of them are "jumping" the chicken wire wall and escaping into the barn. I've watched them flutter up to the top, perch on the wire, then cruise right over to the other side. I worry they will get lost or hurt. My question is, can I clip the wings on these girls when they're so young? If so, how do I do it? Thanks for any insight.
