  1. So I have fenced in half of my lot for my chickens guineas ducks and goats
    can I cut the ducks/guineas wings ? and will my chickens stay in the fence if raised from chicks I have about 35+ chickens what you think?

    What kind of ducks? Many of them can't fly at all unless they're mallards or muscovies, for instance.

    Guineas you could trim the flight feathers but you'd have to keep doing whenever new feathers grow out.

    putting my guineas with my chickens is the worst mistake i have made. they are bossy and run my chickens around. i wish they would fly out of there and stay out!! my chickens wings are clipped the the guineas come and go as they please. they always come back at night to roost and come and go all day. i do not like how they treat my chickens- think about it before you do it.
