Clipping Guinea Fowl Wings - HOW?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Animal Control in Charles County, MD is harassing me.  I need to clip the wings of my guinea fowl to prevent them from jumping the 4' fence I have around my seven acres in a zoned agricultural area.  Please don't tell me it can't be done.  It must be done.  I'd like them to free range because they have eliminated the ticks from my property.

This link is for clipping chicken wings but it is the same for guineas.  You do have to repeat it after every molt.
