With my chickens I start clipping one wing when they start to fly to try to inhibit them from flying over the fence when they are grown. I usually have to do this 2 times the first year. To you all who clip your guinea's wings--I wanted to try the same thing, clip one wing now at about 2 weeks old to keep them from trying to fly so much in the brooder and keep it clipped the first year they are out with the chickens. My hope would be to try to make it easier to be maintained in an open top fence during the day before letting them out to free range. What do you guys think, maybe work or just a waste of time and effort.
