    Hi there I may have posted this in the wrong area. I finally had to break down and clip the wings of my flock. I am now thinking about selling some of my laying hens. My question is will clipping the wing decrease the value of the bird?

    Just let buyers know. Some people might actually prefer them that way. The feathers will grow back, I don't see it's a big deal.
