    Some of my bared rock hens fly out of the fenced area even though the fence is over six feet high. It is possible to cut wing feathers to prevent flight?

    Yes, I have had to clip mine to keep them from flying over in the past. The current flock I have doesn't bother trying anymore so I have stopped doing it. It is pretty simple and the link that was posted give a good description.
