We clip all our birds as a matter of course, as they MUST stay in the pasture (neighbor's garden is less than 10' away from our pasture fence). If you're used to clipping parrots, you'll probably have to be more severe than clipping a parrot. We take all the flights off both wings, otherwise they are over our 4' fence easily. For light bodied birds like our white Leghorns and Red Sex Links, we take all the flights and most of the secondaries. Just use a pair of scissors to cut them off just below the coverts.6' fencing is not a option at the present, have standard field fence now.
Has anyone tried flight feather clipping, as in parrots???
