    will they fly away and never come back if i dont clip there wing. i dont really want to as i have predators and i want them to be able to fly away from them if need be. will they fly away if they get fed and watered here everyday?

    Mine never had. I just kept them penned up until they started going into the coop on their own. Once they did that I let them free range and they always found their way back at night.

    Quote:Mine flew off when a pair of dogs broke into their pen. They missed the evening feeding. The next evening they were all there but 2 and I could hear the pair so I knew they weren't far away. The next night the whole flock was there. These were birds that had been hatched and brought up there.
