I am having a terrible time keeping my female mallard in my barn. She is in the barn at night (along with her buddy who is sitting on eggs) which is a 12 by 12 stall. The top is open, stall is enclosed. By morning time, she flies over the top and out the horses stall. I can't fully enclose the barn because the horses have to come in for water. This morning my neighbor up the street (kind of far!) said she was in her driveway. She has two Rottweiler dogs and a sherpard, so YIKES! One of those dogs ate my cat two years ago. A few days ago my kids said she met them at the bus stop. Funny, but not really. She was happily waddling down the street. I am home most of the time and the ducks free range, but now I am down to two ducks due to I think a creature getting them. VERY SAD. So, DO I CLIP HER WINGS so she can't get out of the barn? Or am I doing more harm by clipping the wings so she can't get away from prey? Guess I always think of the movie FLY AWAY HOME and how awful and inhumane it seems. However, if I don't, I believe she will become lunch for a creature. If you advise to clip, how do I do it?
