    I understand that it is like the clipping of one wing so could i see a picture of a duck that was pinioned?

    Quote:The article shows the more extream form of pinioning cutting bone,If you have it done by an expert only the tenion needs to be cut to keep them from flying off.

    I recently wrote an essay which included a section on pinioning. It's not very nice [​IMG] Granted it's permanent (so no clipping feathers after every moult) and if done at a few days old it shouldn't cause any major problems or pain etc, but I don't really like the idea of cutting part of its wing off :S
