Spring clean up (hens)

We knew we had to clip the wings of the new pullets quickly.  They are very skittish and they tend to fly high.  We were a little nervous that they would get over the 10 foot high fence.

So, Sunday was Clipping Day.

The Red Stars were clipped last year and their feathers only grew in a little, so I didn't need to do much.  But there were white feathers everywhere, after clipping the three leghorns.

Does it hurt them? How do you know what to do?
