    I will be getting some RIRs this spring. They will be behind a 6' wooded fence, with no roof. Is this high enough to keep them in, or do I need to clip their wings? If so, how often do I clip? And do I clip 1 or 2 wings?

    6 ft should be fine we have a 4 ft wire fence which they can see threw and they manage to get out if they want and back in at night. you can always cover it if you find they are getting out with some tree netting you can get at home depot. but i would wait and see.
