    Quote:That's pretty much the standard clipping method, something I've used on everything from budgies to cranes. Just keep your eyes out for blood feathers and not clip them.

    As far as pheasants, the males of aggressive species such as Coppers & some Lophura could be clipped to keep them from chasing the hens (or keepers) around.
