OK heres the plan. I have two females and one male. I got them when they were 9 months old. They had been free range before that. I have them in a coop with a 10x18 out side run. I want to let them free range but I'm terrified they will take off. They have been in the coop for 3 months. So my plan is to clip their wings so I can control them better and herd them back in the coop at night. I'm hoping by next year I won't have to clip them because they will feel like this is home. What do you think? I also need instructions on how to clip them, I want them to be able to have some fight but not be able to hid in a 40ft tree. I'm thinking of building some perches outside for them to jump up on so they feel more secure. Thanks for any advice you can give.
