Due to 1 of my ladies leading the rest into the woods me and my husband put up a run for when we can't be out to supervise. The trouble maker is now flying on to of the coop to escape, lol, the other 2 are too heavy to follow. I'd like to clip her wings, any videos y'all can share, any help would be appreciated

If you spread the wings out like a fan, it is easier to see which feathers.

I had the same problem with my pullets flying over my 6 foot fence when they came out of the coop.

To solve this, I added a 3 foot fence to the top of the existing fence. It was really easy to do ..... I had some 10 foot long, 2 inch steel conduit laying around, so I cut them to 3 feet, 4 inches. This way I got 3 pieces from a 10 footer.

The 2 inch pipe slid perfectly over the top of my T-Posts, and rested on top of the existing fence. PVC would also work, but make sure you measure the inside diameter to get the right size to fit tightly over your T=Posts.

Then I zip tied 3 foot plastic poultry fence directly to the extensions, and this virtually solved the problem !

I still need to go the rest of the way around, but this was the main problem area.

Good luck !
