I am so undecided if I want to clip the wings of the ducklings. Well, I guess I shouldn't be calling them ducklings anymore as they are fully feathered and 14 weeks old (when do we stop refering to them as ducklings anyway?) This morning while eating breakfast I was treated to the sight of several of them flying about 5 feet off of the ground for about 100 yards. One ended up flying up to the top of the 6' pasture perimeter fence. So, I know that there are several on BYC that leave their muscovy full flight. I am well aware of the pros (predator evasion) and cons (flying off) etc. We have a lot of predators here. Dogs, coyotes, hawks etc. My question, do you have problems with your ducks flying into areas that they shouldn't be? I don't allow them in the pasture anymore as it is overgrown and I had lost a few chickens to dogs, coyotes and hawks in there. But if they flew in, they would be able to fly out, if need be. I'm not too worried about them flying off as there is not a ton of available feed sources out there right now and they know where their meals come from. My adults are clipped until they molt. Ugh, I can't decide.
