I've heard so many different things from so many different people I figured I would just get one mass opinion on here. Younger, flighty [game] birds get their wings clipped around here so that they can't fly out of the coops and are less likely to put themselves in bad situations once it's time to be tamed. I have ALWAYS clipped the right wing, and the right wing only. Right now I have four chicks out of thirty caught, the rest are still to small to separate from their mothers. What I'm asking is, on birds who you have to clip wings on... do you clip one wing? Both? Have you found clipping a certain side makes it less likely that the birds will fly? Is it true that birds who learn to fly at early ages [the four chicks I have now I plucked from a thirty foot branch about twenty minutes ago] will still be able to JUMP higher than the average bird? I'm curious to hear what others think on wing clipping, how they do it, why, etc.
