    Is there a way to clip their wings so they can not fly into my neighbors yard? I want them to be able to be set free in my yard. My fence is 6 foot tall!

    Clip one of the wings on each bird. The diagram that Studio2770 posted shows where to cut. Cut the ten outermost feathers on the wing. When a bird tries to fly, it will be off balance.
