    ...not exaggerating - she could get eaten by the neighbors dogs if she keeps this up.

    Every evening she goes up into a tree or on the fence - I already clipped a wing (thanks BYC learning center), actually did it twice going as low as i dared.

    Should I clip her other wing? We've caught her a few times and stuck her in the coop with the others, but its not easy as we dont want her to go over the fence into the neighbors dogs territory.
