So I have 3 lovely chickens who free range in my backyard. They are 18 weeks and seemed to be content with the arrangements I have provided them, or so I thought. Lately they have been flying up on the fence and roosting there. It wasnt bothering me one bit. Actually it was enjoyable watching them tightrope walk. Except that now that they have gotten a better view of the "other side" they see that the grass IS greener on the other side. I get a text message from my DBF this morning saying the the chickens have "flown the coop!!!" They had flown across the fence and were happily pecking at the ground on the other side - BY THE ROAD!!! Now mind you, I do not live in the country. I live in a suburb so this cannot continue. I really do not want to enclose them now since they have been free range birds since about 3 weeks old. Should I clip their wings? Anyone with instructions on how do do this please...? It would be greatly appreciated.
