                Have you tried a single wing clip (just trimming feathers on one wing) TopNotch ? It means the chook can still flap up to a low roost but barrel if they try to fly anywhere.

                  Io6 Yeah, so they say, but it has never worked with my chickens. I've darn near cut the whole wing off (now, there's a thought ) and I've found that really, I just have to wait it out until they get too heavy to fly. I popped the new girls into the coop late last night (after I'd peeled them down from the washing line) and this evening, they were already back inside before the other girls decided it was bed time, so maybe it's all over.
                  PetiteSheWolf I think it's a nice idea to have some knowledge of the first language of the greater part of the people who share your bloodline, so I'd learning Danish. Occasionally I pop into the French bit to brush up on colloquialisms and such. I did French at school, and then in my further studies, about 40% of my modern research sources were in French (about another 10% in Italian, German, Spanish, and Chinese - I got someone else to translate the Chinese!) but this was academic French (astronomy) so not exactly chatty.

                  Took the children to the zoo today so that was a nice walk. Not too hot yet by the time we got home around midday, but hot enough for ice-creams!
                  And because some people (Anek ) keep asking, here's one more photo of the three kittens.

                  That's Footprints on the right, Astrophe (yes, I take responsibility for suggesting the name to my daughter - she is indeed Cat-Astrophe!) and Fluffball (my other daughter hasn't met her yet to give her a name so, as she's a medium-haired fluffball, that's what I've called her) on the left.

                        Home Front M07 Open 24 Hours - This mission had me doing stairs, elbow planks, bicep curls, and punches, as well as my awesome dancing, of course! All for about half an hour.

                        Today was one of those days when I only got to squeeze things in here and there so much didn't get done, which was a shame because I had wanted to give Fremen 's kettlebell routine a go. Still, there's tomorrow and the next day and etc etc etc.

                          As long as your kettlebell is staring at you ugly ugly, that's fine

                            day 20 De-stress On the heavy bag again because it just feels so good!

                            This morning I introduced the new hens to my eldest. I picked up Trouble because she's not so flighty as Strife, and was just standing there, holding this chook, when Strife flew up and landed on my shoulder. Sat there like a pirate's parrot - only a lot bigger! When I put Trouble down, Strife slid down my shoulder, so to go with all the little kitten scratches and tiny nail holes, I now have a red welt down my deltoid. Actually,
                            I'm looking a little worse for wear! And this is even BEFORE training starts again!
                            Fremen Oh, that kettlebell is looking at me. Today I gave it a brief trip Around the World, just to show it what it was in for! It did feel very good - so long as I swung it out far enough to give me time to change hands!

                              It's an interesting exercise, figure 8 is also a variation of the side lunges
