Houdini and why we clip wings

Houdini's understudy

We have a lovely Gold-Laced Wyandotte pullet who has figured out that she can fly.  In spite of having one of her wings clipped this week, she still wants to show her coop mates how to fly to the top of the fence and escape.  Chicken Run, a fun animated movie released a decade ago, features a chicken very much like our hen Houdini, who is determined to escape captivity.  Maybe the writers of the movie were inspired by a visit to a chicken flock much like the one we house here at the Edible Schoolyard.
