    Try this link. Also in YouTube search "clipping chickens wings" and you will get some more. I really liked this guy because he is trying chickens for the first time and has a bunch of episodes that are about his garden and chickens. Funs stuff.

    i watched the youtube video and then just did it, cut 10 or so feathers, they will try to fly, find it confusing and quit trying
