Well, I’ve never been too close to live chickens too often in my life, simply due to the fact I enjoy cities more but if you want to learn how to clip chicken wings, here’s how to do it. It can in fact save your chicken from escaping, getting lost, getting into fights with dogs, and lots of good stuff.
Chickens can’t fly as well as other birds, but they can flap their wings enough to carry them over fences and out of the coop. If you’ve got backyard free range chickens, clipping their wings is a must so that you chickens don’t escape and get lost, or worse, in trouble with an angry dog or some other predator in the area.
Clipping chicken wings is a bit daunting if you’ve never done it before, but once you’ve clipped a wing or two, you’ll discover that it really isn’t as difficult or dangerous as you may have thought.
