I'm fairly certain the topic of wing clipping isn't a new one..............but it is to me. Our chickens are 19 weeks old...............and clearing the fence around their coop and run as if it weren't even there! I know there are ways to totally enclose their pen, but I'm really getting tired of spending money on this "chicken stuff"! So they obviously have flight feathers and I've downloaded the page here on the forum describing how to cut them. But my question is, at 19 weeks, are the feathers to their full length, or will I be faced with clipping again soon? Also, do chickens molt just once a year...........meaning, will I have to do this particular chore only once a year?
