Good morning!

Has been a while since I was on here and happy to be back! I have 3 Red Wyandottes and they are in a fenced area of our backyard. One of them has decided after over a year that she wants to fly over the 4' fence and is destroying parts of the garden and our new grass. I give them pads of sod but that doesn't seem to keep her inside. I pick her up and put her back but she doesn't stay. Can I clip her wings like I do my cockatiel? If so, how far? Please help me asap before she continues to destroy things.

Thank you!

You definitely can. It is pretty much the same as your cockatiels, but I found only trimming one side instead of both Wings works best as it makes their flight lopsided. That should deter her from wanting to try.

Awesome! Thank you sssooo much! I'm certainly going to do that, expecially since I'll be starting my garden next month and she'll tear it apart!

4' is nothing for them to fly over...clipping may or may not help.
Does she land on top of fence before going over?
Better to extend fence up a couple feet with some garden stakes and floppy chicken wire.
Pics of fence might garner other solutions.

I'll be starting my garden next month
You must live on the other(from me) side of the world?
Where in this world are you located?
Climate, and time of year, is almost always a factor.
Please add your general geographical location to your profile.
It's easy to do, and then it's always there!
