I have one chicken from the neighbors that wouldn't stay in there yard. After a month of putting her over the fence every other day we discovered the other chickens were abusing her and attacking her. The neighbor came over with her in his arms and said "here you keep her she's happier with you"! So this is how I got our first chicken. Now the neighbor came over with two chicks about 8 wks. or so and gave them to us. They can fly pretty good and I know the big hen's wings are clipped but I don't know how to clip the chicks wings. And our neighbors don't speak English well. So does anyone know how close the feathers should be clipped? I don't want to injure the new chicks. Any advice would be appreciated. This is all new to us.
