Easter Eggers

Jul 10, 2007
We have 20 hens, all 'heavyweights' except three of them, which are 'ornamental' smaller chickens. One kept getting out of the pen and actually taking flight so we had to clip her feathers on one wing and she's been staying put since then.

About two months ago we bought six Easter Egger pullets just for fun and I am noticing they are NOT very big chickens and look, at least at this time, about the size of our 'flighty' bird. How big do the Easter Eggers get? Should we plan on clipping their wing feathers before letting them out with the other hens and outdoors? They 're in a 'nursery' area in the coop right now.

Thanks for any input or advice.
