    You won't have to clip wings again until after the chickens go through a molt and grow new wing feathers. You'll only need to clip the primaries on one wing. You can find good instructions in the teaching section.

    Twice a year is usually sufficient, on younger chickens you might have to do if more often because they grow new feathers more. [​IMG]
