I have tried to no avail to find this answer on my own, I think it must be so basic I cannot find the answer, or I am using incorrect terms to find the answer. My chicks came home from a farm store yesterday, I am guessing they are a range of 2-5 days old. Two are a bit bigger with more wing feathers. All my chicks have a blue or pink metal clip on one wing. Should I leave this clip on? If so, for how long? What is the purpose of the clip? I assumed it had to do with preventing wing development for flying but I really don't know. These are our first chicks and even though I feel like I did a fair amount of research before getting them, I still have SO many questions.
