I have 2 little Welsummer hens that are 23 weeks old and have had a grand time in my back yard until yesterday when Sadie decided the front yard seemed like fun as well. Penny tried to follow but got stuck in the wood pen, thankfully! My neighbor, bless her heart, saw Sadie and called me before the silly chicken could get into the street. I got Wellies thinking they wouldn't be interested in wandering as we have neighbors on 3 sides and one neighbor with a nasty big dog. Now that they know they can get out I am wondering if I should clip their wings. Has anyone ever done that and does it work well? I did move their coop further away from the fence since I believe that's how they got out (onto the top of the coop, then over the gate to the woodpile, chicken walk the wood to the next gate and voila! you're in the front yard) It was very comical watching our little antics, especially since Sadie kept going under a tree and all the people who were driving by could see was 3 ppl standing hunched over in the front yard around a tree with our arms outstretched. Probably looked like some kind of weird Druid ceremony. Some random kid came by on his bike and asked if we were trying to catch a chicken, lol!! Apparently he has chickens so has seen this dance before.
