Re: Absolutely TERRIBLE “instructional” video on wing clipping!

I guess I missed her talking about butchering the wings. You are 100% right- you can't cut off all their feathers or else they'll have the same ability to fly as us (i.e. drop like a rock) yet still retain that instinct to occasionally take off if something scares them significantly. The goal of clipping should be to keep them from getting lift and slow them down, not to disable them and put them at risk of injury.
