    To clip a chicken's wings? And how many weeks before it can be done?

    Thanks!

    If you go to the Index and then go to "Managing your flock", go to the "search" area in the upper right corner and type in "clipping wings". It will lead you to MANY previous discussions on clipping wings. I think that you would do this with chickens that have feathers, not chicks!!!

    Good Luck!!

    Here is a site that is about clipping wings.
    http://www.poultryhelp.com/wingclipping.html

    Here is a great reference book, Gail Damerow's 'Storey's Guide to Chickens' is an excellent guide, as well as this web site. This site is an excellent source of information.
