My 6.5 month old pullets (2 Easter Eggers & 2 who may be Barred Rocks or Dominique’s) have started flapping over their 5 foot fence. I am ready to clip their wings but I’m unsure whether to clip one wing or both of them. I’ve read opinions both ways. What are your thoughts? Thank you.

I've done all combinations of wing clipping.
Do both wings, primaries only and see if that's enough. You may have to go back for the secondaries. I had to on some of my birds.

I have clipped just one before and it was fine and well before they were trying to fly.. so the idea of even trying was no good cause they never could in the first place. You can clip both also..
