clipping wings

Hubby is always up for teaching. So when we found ourselves with a house full of kids this afternoon he decided it was a perfect day to clip the flocks' wings. (Out of respect - the only kids in the photo also had a parent on site)

The girls really didn't need it done yet - they are not yet flying. But each child got to try it. (There's something to talk about at the dinner table!) Who would have thought this chore would be so exciting!

The quail also got their wings clipped. Despite their small stature, they can jump to the top of the rubbermaid tub. Clipping however, did not lessen this as they are truly jumping.

On a side note - check out the tips of the brown leghorn (now named Heather by one of the participating children BTW) I have never seen anything like it.
