    My EE's are now 12 weeks old and I'm thinking of introducing them to the flock but I'm afraid that when I do introduce them the young ones will fly over the fence trying to get away from the adults, they have lots of space to run and hide when threatened so that's not a problem, my problem is that I'm wondering if they are too young to have their wings clipped, any good advice would be appreciated..

    There really isn't too young for wing clipping. Now would be a very good time to get them used to it, and yes necessary if they will escape.
