    We inherited a young chicken. We cut the feathers of one wing and she could still fly over our 5-6' high fence. So since I am work the wife cut the feathers of the other wing but she can still get over the fence? Any other suggestions? I do not want to put a top on our run.

    I guess i could extend the fence w/ mesh until she until gets too heavy to fly up and over.
