Hello, I am new to this forum. I have seven chickens that I have raised from chicks and I need to clip their wings. I have been trying to train them to go to the coop instead of going to the tree, which they started almost a week ago. It is a nightly battle. So, I clipped them last night; but wondered if I did it right. So now, I searched on the internet (how I found this forum) and think I messed up. I did not clip from the front but clipped only a few from the back. I did clip the ones under the top row of feathers. Won't know until tonight if they can still fly. Did I mess up my chickens? And what does it mean they might need help when it is molting time. How will I know I need to "pluck" some feathers? Thanks.
