I'm planning for our first flock and reading everything I can about them. I just watched a video on You Tube with chickens flying all over the place. Do you recommend clipping their wings? I have selected breeds that should do well in our environment but I never thought about them flying away!

Hi - I'm in the process of planning for our first flock of chickens. My selection has been based on chickens that are friendly, smart, good for beginners and somewhat heat tolerant as the summers in Santa Clarita can be brutal at times. Oh, yes, and a few eggs would be icing on the cake. My selection includes a Barred Plymouth Rock, a Rhode Island Red, an Easter Egger, and a Wyandotte. However, I have noticed that the Wyandottes don't seem to be recommended on this forum and have discovered that they tend to go broody. How difficult is it to deal with a broody hen or should I just switch to a different breed. If switching is the best choice, what would you recommend?
