    hi, i recently bought two runner ducks and was told by the breeder that ther is no need to clip wings as the dont fly.

    i am wondering if i should clip their wing anyway , or will they be ok .

    this is the first time i have kept ducks and chickens , i have clipped the chickens wings .

    from what i've read, they really don't fly, but I guess it wouldn't hurt them to do it anyway.
