backyard chickens, anyone?
#18
Clipping their wings keeps them from flying.  Chickens don't fly very well anyway, especially the heavy egg layers, but clipping them makes sure.  It doesn't hurt; you just trim the big feathers on one wing, not cutting into their body in any way.  It's like cutting half of one wing off an airplane.  The Storey book has pictures.
