    I clip the right wing on mine when they are at the age where they are going outside in the day to keep them from flying out. I only do the right, you are not supposed to do both.

    My run is enclosed. Do u have to clip their wings?? They r still babies and r "flying" around in the brooder, but wasn't sure if I should still clip their wings when they go out since the run is enclosed?
