I have a little sassy mallard mix (her name is Pteradactyl) and she's quite adept at flying. I don't want her to fly away this coming late fall, and she's been doing a lot of evening flying when I put the other ducks in at night. She'll go "what, why are we going in?" and sort of leisurely walk to the duck-house and then fly back to the pool on the other side of the yard. It's adorable, but it makes me worry she's just going to up and leave one of these days and won't see it coming. My question is, should I get her wings clipped so she won't be able to run away come fall, and if so, should I just do it now, or wait a little? I feel so bad at the idea of taking away her flight when it's so cute, but I don't want to lose her. I feel like if she was going to leave, she's had plenty of time (at least a couple months and she got picked on and didn't leave). Thoughts?
