Let me out a here!
One of our girls has a wild case of wanderlust! She's forever getting out of the run which has 8 feet high chicken wire surrounding it.... None of the other girls could care less about getting out. Just Stevie. Every night for the last month we have to go outside and get her off the top of the coop and put her inside for the night, only to find her outside in the garden rummaging around early the next morning.
Naturally we want her to be safe, so we decided this special girl should have a feather cut!
No, not the one we all wore in the 70's; the kind that will hopefully keep her cooped up for good! We've never done it before so we looked around on you tube and found it's really quite simple!
Here, have a look!
