Can you clip a baby chickens wings?
no. wait until its older and it starts to fly a few feet across the yard. Also if its flying a little high when its older it might be a good idea to clip them then!

I would clip only one wing, otherwise if you clip both then they can still fly.The object is to clip one wing to make them off balance.
Answer: . Well I cant tell you that because im not a chick a dont work at Wing Stop!!!! ahahahaha. 39 dog years. why thank you. i like chicken and waffles and i dislike black people................................
all you have to do is get a small pair of nail scissors you want big scissors for big birds . so once you have the scissors you get the end bit of your birds wing and cut it ,BUT DO NOT CUT TO MUCH OF.
Yes, but the wings are too small for it to fly UPDATE: A big misunderstanding, chickens can't fly. I myself have chickens, and no, they can't fly for hours like birds can, but when in danger, (my neighbours cat often wanders into our garden) they can fly up to the rooftop. In the wild, chickens …sleep in trees, also for safety, so foxes and other small predators can't get to them when they're sleeping. So there's you answer: Chickens can fly, not for hours though. They need their wings to protect them from danger. How high a chicken can fly, depends on the way they're built. I have Japanese Chiba's Rich are really small, they can fly over our rooftop if necessary (They don't do that very often though, the cat is more afraid of them than the other way around and they always come back to their own trusted, home made, bright pink :D hen house.) The bigger the chicken, the shorter the "flying distance" (exceptions are clipped wings of course, but I don't do that) (MORE)
You clip a parakeets wings the way you do any other birds. You hold tall of the wing feathers in one hand then you have to look for the 6 non-nerve feathers there is only 6 on each wing but to be safe I would suggest that you bring your parakeet to the vet they will do it for most likely around $30.…00 which is not to bad compard to if you cut the wrong wing and had to go to the vet for an emergency. NO NO NO!!! Take it to a little place I take my bird called, The Bird Shop. Look for it in the phone book. They will clip small bird's wings for only $3.00 and clip their nails for only $2.00. MUCH BETTER THAN DOING IT YOURSELF!!! (MORE)
Its wings are not clipped enough to prevent it from some flight. This is normal behavior for a young bird. More contact and handling is needed to make this bird feel comfortable with you holding it.
Unless the wing tips have been clipped they can fly with them. Even if they have had them clipped they can get some lift with them and use them to get up to their perch at night. They often use them to display anger or excitement and to protect their chicks keeping them warm and safe.
Clip Your Wings: to end a person's privileges; to take away someone's power . Origin: In ancient Rome, people clipped the wings of pet birds so that they would not fly away. Therefore, for centuries, people have used the expression 'clip one's wings' to mean bringing someone under control.. It o…riginates from the practice of shortening flight feathers of domestic and caged birds in order to prevent flight, and therfore loss of birds. To clip someone's wings means to put in place actions or ideas to calm them down, prevent flightiness, make them settle. (MORE)
You need only to clip one wing for flight control. The last 10 feathers on a hens wings are the primary flight feathers and can be clipped roughly 2/3 down and equal to the shorter feathers on that same wing. A pair of sharp scissors and an extra pair of hands (helper) is all you need. The feathers …will not bleed and this causes NO pain to the bird. They will however grow back after the next molt. (MORE)
clipping a bird's wings means cutting the feathers short on one wing. This keeps the bird from flying away because if it tries to fly with one wing clipped short, it can't balance. If the wings are not clipped, then the bird can fly away.
Yes, if you clip their wings they will be able to fly again eventually. It takes about six months for them to grow back, but they will.
no...they are regular chicken wings that you have all of the time. the term "buffalo" comes from where they supposedly got their start. someone in buffalo, N.Y. decided to add hot sauce and melted butter over the wings.
When you clip chicken wings, many say you should only clip one otherwise, they can still fly. Clip as above and never clip where there are blood vessels. You can hold the wing toward a light source to see where the blood vessels are.

First you get a Taylor Pharr and try and clip her fingers off. Then you get an Ariyah Kohel and cut her arms and legs off. Thirdly you get a Melanie Rovinsky and cut all her hair off. Finally you get an Emily Maloney and cut her mouth off so she doesn't cluck any bad or swear words. I hope this …will help! (Ha Ha, He He) Please try and play along with me because these are real people in my school!!!! (MORE)
Chicken wings are usually from chickens between 6 and 8 weeks old. They're bred specially to grow quickly, a mix between a male Cornish and a female Plymouth Rock. At that age, they are large enough to harvest. So, technically, the birds that make chicken wings are still chicks, because they're not …a year old yet. (MORE)
They can be breaded or they don't have to have breading on it.They taste better with the breading on it anyway.. If you want to make real Buffalo Wings, forget the breading. Real Buffalo wings are deep fried, dumped into a large mixing bowl with the Anchor Bars Buffalo Wing Sauce then toss.. Just …a few things to think about when choosing a restraunt serving "Buffalo Wings". 1. The words Texas and Pete are not in the sauce recipe.. 2. Real Buffalo Wings only come three ways, mild, medium, and suicidal. Not what BWW offers.. 3. Real Buffalo Wings are about half the price of the national chain knock offs. (MORE)
Wing clipping is done to prevent the hen from flying, most chickens don't fly much anyway but here is how to do the job. You need VERY sharp shears. You really only need to do one wing as this unbalances the flyer. spread the wing out and you will see 10 large flight feathers. These can be …snipped even with the rest of the feathers on the wing with no problem or pain to the bird. See the link provided in "related links" below for diagram. (MORE)
If you clip one wing it's not cruel because then it can't fly up enough to fly into a fan or out the door (where if it's a pet it'll struggle in the wild) but it'll still have one wing to help it glide to the floor instead of crashing down (which is what happens if you clip both wings) when you clip… one wing on a bird you're not actually hurting it because you don't cut the bones or anything it's just feathers you're cutting (birds sometimes scream when they get their wing cut because it doesn't know what you're doing but it's not actually in pain it's just protecting itself thinks it could be under attack) but if you have a pet bird without having one of its wings clipped you risk it flying into a fan. But it's best to let it grow back a bit before cutting it again and to sometimes change what wing it is that's clipped (because you don't want the bird to get use to it and learn how to fly up with a clipped wing because you don't want it to fly into a fan) I love animals, I own 3 birds and do this for them, one of them is 9 years old, they're all very happy and I'd never hurt them. I also have certificate 2 in animal studies :) It's for their own good :) It's not cruel at all :) (MORE)
Wing clipping is usually done soon after the flight feathers come in on the birds and that depends on the breed involved. This is often in and around 16 weeks old but can be as late as 24 weeks. Flight feather clipping is usually only done for free range and outdoor caged birds and is only temporary… as these clipped feathers will grow back at the first molt. (MORE)
This is very easy. Only clip one wing or they will adapt and learn to fly with clipped wings. Hold chicken firmly and spread out one wing. You will notice a shutter like look on the feathers of the wing. You clip exactly under the shutterlike appearance. Just to be sure, take a look at both sides of… the wing. You can clearly see where before the shutterlike layers begin the actual chicken wing is. If you clip above this you will hurt your chicken. Clip one entire wing front to back below the shutterlike layers. (MORE)
Most people say don't clip them but they regrow between 4-5 months, you should clip only the main flight feathers only on one wing. repeat 1 wing.
you just clip the feathers on the wing but make sure you do not cut them to close to the wing or else you will hurt the bird
Lovebirds are among the shyest of the parrots, so it is possible that some could be traumatised from a wing clipping at the vet.
Most healthy wing clipped chickens can manage a few feet. It all depends on how heavy the bird is. Wing clipping just really curtails sustained flight. A frightened chicken with wings flapping and running can still manage some flight even when its wings are clipped.
1/4 of a cup of sugar. Then you must let sit for 3 hours in refrigerator. .
Chickens are birds, so yes, but their wings are too small for them to fly further than a few yards.
Why would you want to?? Most chickens are kept in a coop, with a fenced-in yard attached, so you don't have to worry about them flying away. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I agree with the above answer, though some people have chickens kept in a pen in which the chicken can fly ov…er. Also, some like to let their chickens out, and don't want them flying or jumping everywhere (like our chickens). The best way to clip a chicken wing, is to cut the feathers on the outside of the wing level to those on the inside. If you still wanted the picture, I found a good one here (see below). I own a lot of chickens, and other poultry, and this method can also be used on poultry and birds like budgies, and guinea fowls. (MORE)
Yes, all birds have wings.Chickens do have wings,and hey do fly in the past,but because when farmers are breeding them,the chickens are usually caged up.Over a period of time,those chickens would forget how to fly and slowly became one of the bird that could not fly.
Yes, Chicken wings are really wings of the actual bird. If you want, you can search for videos online that demonstrate the process of slaughtering, plucking, and separating the body parts of chicken.
Do NOT do it yourself no matter what people with no expierience tell you. It can be harmful if you dont do it right, or even permanent, whick can end terribly. Take the bird to a vetrinarian or other trained proffesional. they have the correct tools and know where to cut
No. Chickens are birds and like all birds they have wings. The wings are the actual chicken's wings, not baby chickens.
The most common breed for eating is the fryer, although you can eat any chicken.
20 Depends on how many it ate. Lol--both answers are wrong, actually...Near the Chernobyl reactor site, chickens have between 3 and 4 wings.
If you dont want them to fly away it might help. It does not hurt the bird but would you like your wings clipped.
People clip the feathers on one wing of a bird to keep it fromflying away - it prevents them from getting enough lift and flyingstraight, so they stay in one place. If you figuratively clipsomeone's wings, you keep them from being free to leave.
It flies, Grace, it flies! :D Emmy :D :D If this is not Grace asking the question, I am deeply embarrassed. My apologies to the questioner if this is the case.
Clipping their wings is when you make their wings shorter and make the bird unable to fly
They will not be able to fly, well not until their wings grow back. If you don't want it to be able to fly you must clip them every so often.
It helps, indoor birds can hurt themselves trying to fly around indoors, and it helps you control him.
No. Our local pet shop was closed (Andersons Pet Shop) so we called and they said no. Sad huh.
They are not allowed to be sold anymore because people believe that they are cruel to animals.
Some pet stores have ducks that you cold keep. So the workers put like this special matirial on the ducks wing so it can not fly all a round but if you want it to fly ask the workers again. If I were you I would not want to do that cause it could fly outside and it will be a wast of money.
Umm..... Chickens are kind of born with wings... But people think in some way that chickens were related to dinosaurs. Well the flying ones I should say. Maybe you should look up the history of flying dinosaurs and then look up a chicken. It might help you quite a bit
This is a question that only YOU can answer You really have to think it through about whether or not you clip your companions wings and make them lose their freedom or whether you don't clip their wings and take the risk of injury! I had two birds one is a budgie. She flew into the window once… but only softly and has never done so again. My other bird was a yellow-crowned kakariki. He was only young because we hand raised him. He was the kindest most friendliest bird I had ever seen. But one day we took him to our holiday house. He was fine with the windows there. He loved flying so much but he wasn't very good at landing. He flew about three circles around our living room until he came back around towards me. He just kept flying really fast, too fast. And went straight into the window. He fell on his back on the floor. I called my mum over and picked him up. My mum scooped him out of my hands and said that he had broken his neck and that he was dead. I cried for so long. Every now and then I wonder if it was the right decision not to clip his wings. Please give thought to this kind of thing. (MORE)
Clipping a chicken's wings has nothing to do with the hen's egg laying ability. The only thing wing clipping does is to keep a light weight hen inside the fence or out of the trees where they love to roost. Light weight chickens cannot fly, in the traditional sense of flying, but they can, and will,… jump to the top of the gates/fences and the lower limbs of trees. (MORE)
There are a couple of different ways in which a chicken may not have their wings. They chicken could be born with a birth defect or the chicken could be butchered at the market.
Many people clip hens wings so that they cannot fly. I think it is very mean though many people do it
No, it is not safe to do so. Clip them only when they have adultfeathers and only when necessary.
snip of the first four primaries or flight feather on one wing downto the coverts this will not harm the bird, they will grow backwhen the bird moults
