Peafowl Wing Clipping
Hold the bird with a firm grip on both legs.
Open up the wing to be clipped to expose
the flight feathers.
Wire cutters or sharp scissors are used to
cut the feathers.
Cut one feather at a time, using the small
tertiary feathers as a guide.
Use the tertiary feathers as a guide to prevent
cutting too close to the wing bone.
Continue cutting across the wing.
Wing feathers will grow back in 4-5 months.
