Anyone who has some advise on this issue, that would be great. We have a white crested black polish hen that will not go in the coop. We have caught her and put her in there, but most of the time she will fly 10ft to nest in a tree! It was fine in summer, but last night she got pelted by a hail storm and was very cold this morning. We're going to attempt to clip one of her wings because she's just such a flyer. Now here's the problem, I know which flight feathers to clip, and to stay away from the blood in the shafts, but what do you do when the feather shafts are black and can't see any blood?? Is there a general length you cut down to?? Thanks for the help!
