When it's time to fly it's time to cut

post #1 of 6

I have some pullets jumping over the fence so I went out to cut there wings when I thought I'm taking these chooks to the poultry auction and turning up with cut wings isn't a good look nor is it good for your wallet when you see your bird sell for $0. So i would be much appreciate it if anyone had any alternativesūü§Ēūü§Ēūü§Ē

Hi there frow.gif

My advice to you would be to make a covered run so they can't escape. This way your birds will still look ok for when you sell them. I tried the wing clipping with my previous set up and they still escaped as my run sides were just not high enough. It's been so much easier with a covered run and I also feel they are more protected from predators.

You would get many more responses by posting your questions in the most appropriate forum section. This is the new member intro section so not as many folk get around here highfive.gif

When you clip the wings, you take their best form of escape  away from them.   Just like declawing a cat.  If they can get over the fence easily, so can  feral cats,  and other predators.
