    I was out in the backyard around sunset tonight taking pictures of my flock. I noticed my EE Bella near the chain link gate in the backyard. It is about 5 feet high and I had put up some netting near it to keep the chicks away
    from some new plants I just put in to grow on the fence. Bella easily flew up to the top of the fence, and just sat there wondering how she was going to get back down. Of course I took some pictures of it. I guess I am going to have to
    clip some feathers tomorrow.

    Planing her escape...

    Of course, I just had to get some pics before I helped her down...

    Thanks for the comments, I am glad you like my pictures and think the chicks look good. This is my first flock. I got the original four girls back in late July, and now I have 10 in total. They are all so unique and I really enjoy them all.
    I can't wait for them to start laying.

    What a beautiful EE! Keep us posted on how the wing-clipping works out. All six of mine have been getting over our 6 foot block wall and I am thinking this is our next step...
