It’s a common myth that chickens can’t fly, in reality, they certainly can. In the wild, chickens are able to fly short distances, enough to get them over fences or up into trees.

This video from Raising Happy Chickens shares a simple, painless way to clip chickens wings to keep them around. Enjoy!
