I live on 1.5 acres in the city. My chickens are under the radar as my township does not allow me to have them unless I live on 3 acres. My home is completely wooded, I cannot see my neighbors but they are there & they are pretty close. I would like to allow my girls to free range while I am home & they are supervised. We would only allow them to run around our patio & our garden, so they wouldn't even be out by the creek or the heavily wooded area. I am concerned that they might fly up into a tree or over into my neighbor's yard & into the mouth of his pit bull. My question is this: Should I clip their wings before we let them out? Does anyone have experience with free ranging in your urban setting?
