how do I know when to clip my girls wings again?

post #1 of 4

i let my girls roam my yard all say but I don't want them getting up in a tree/fence etc. I clipped their wings about 2 or 3 months a ago but they have molted since then (idk if that does anything) When do I clip them again?

Good question, I was thinking the same... I have a high perimeter fence & walk round my garden but my Ancona's are good flyers and don't want them escaping.

When they are able to fly again

If they are younger than a year than they may regrow so check them, otherwise after the full body fall molt is done and the blood has retreated out of the feathers you can trim them again.
