    I pinion my muscovies and cotton patch goslings and was wondering if I was doing anything wrong. I was told that with 1 day olds, they shouldnt bleed, but I have to put pressure on the wing tip for 15 minutes to get it to stop. It's not a lot, but it is definitely bleeing. Is this normal?

    Never pinioned one myself but I have a friend that swears using a hot knife like what is used for cutting foam stops any bleeding.
