    when I got my 6 girls there wings had been clipped. they were running free range. will they ever get new wing feathers. they have a hard time getting to there roost at night because they were cut rather short. ive lowered there roost and put a better ramp but feel sorry for them. I hope they get some of there wing feathers back
