Our girls are almost 9 weeks and 10 weeks now...,getting big! In the last day or so our 10 week white girl has really starting flapping and getting a little distance. We have read so many different opinions on them and flight. I get that they may start trying to fly at different times cause different weights ect. Some people say they won't even try because they are domesticated, some say they might, some say they might even fly away. I don't like the idea of pinning their wings, sounds painful, and some have suggested plucking some primary flight feathers, that seems painful and these are our pets and don't want them to hate us! I managed a pet store years ago and did all the clipping for our small birds. I often tried clipping just one wing and most small birds can still fly pretty good and I would have to do both, is this the same with them? They are completely locked up at night, nothing's getting in their enclosure! During the day when they re out my property is pretty secure, have 10 ft fences on the sides and back of my property and about 12 ft fence on the other side, (they are very tall fences.) my dogs and cat don't let anything in the yard and keep a very good eye on their duckies! I am wondering if I should do both wings? Even though my yard is very private I do live in the city and don't want them somehow ending up on the road. Would love some different opinions of what others have done or what worked for them, thanks!
