I am getting a mini appleyard or possibly aussie potted duckling this coming spring. I've read just about everywhere that these ducks are small enough to fly well. How often do their wings need to be clipped? What's the difference between clipping and pinoining? Is clipping something the vet needs to do or i can learn to do? (if the vet, does anyone know the approx. cost?) My pet ducks spend a good chunk of their time hanging out inside my house in their pen on my back patio/sunroom. I have two runners (one of which is huge and well, kinda fat looking) who can barely fly out of their low pen into the rest of the house (which they do only when we're cooking, lol and they smell food). But a small duck might be able to fly out easier and could get in a lot more trouble than my current duckies, so it'll need to be clipped/pinoined. any info would help greatly!
