    Hello,
    I know I've asked this question before but I only received one reply, and I didn't wanna just go by that.
    So my question is when should we clip our chickens wings? I think there in between 6-8 weeks, and next week we are gonna put them out side in the coop because they are really stinking up the garage! So does anyone know when we need to clip there wings? I will post some pictures of them in a minute (they've grown soooooo much!)

    Because we don't live on a farm, we have a postage stamp backyard. If the flew or glided a way they'd end up in out neighbors back yard and we only have four
