    my fence is 6ft and they are in the orchard and free rage in the yard during the day. i have seen them jump really high but never on the fence or so high they might leave. however there is a rottie next door and i do not want to risk them getting hurt. Do i clip and if so when? thanks

    We clipped all of our chickens wings three days ago and they still flew up and over the fence. Should we clip the other side as well?

    Help. We have chickens to manage the parasites in our alpaca pasture. They never stay in the pasture; so we clipped their wings. They still fly out. Should we clip the other side,too?
