    I have a small EE that has flown out of the backyard twice now. I know I need to clip her wings bc it is not safe for her out of the yard but why does she keep doing it in the first place?

    To get to the other side, HAHA!

    My chickens do it all the time to get out of their run and scratch around for bugs in the grass. I shush them back to the house when they get too far for my liking.

    Why did the chicken cross the road? Cause she can, I guess! The bugs are always better on the other side of the fence. She's a free spirit...who knows? Good luck containing her!
