Dolley in flight. They are all quite into flying these days. They seem to think the purpose of flight is to get up into the air so they can drop straight down on one of their chick sisters. What a rude shock it will be for them when they get to be big fat hens who can’t fly as much. Oh, well, that and the fact that I’ll probably clip their wings. Another hen parenting debate: to clip or not to clip? Will clipping keep them from being able to escape predators, or prevent them from flying over the fence into the alley, where ravenous dogs await?
