    Hello all,

    We are planning on clipping our turkeys wings this spring when the wild turkeys come so that she/he doesn't fly away with them. We would appreciate any tips or tricks that you have learned. This is our first time clipping a fowls wings so we just want to make sure we don't mess up. I will be gone late tomorrow until Sunday for Thanksgiving with my family. If you have any questions during that time, just quote this message and ask. I probably will not be able to reply until I get back, so keep that in mind. Thanks in advance!

    Only clip one wing and remember that turkeys can jump really high so clipping a wing may not solve your problem.
