Re: Re: critters


Unless I cage her, I cannot clip her wings. It is her only form of
defense - to be able to fly out of harms way. We have coyotes and a very
large dog that is still a puppy and likes to chase things with feathers.
She won't bother Mr. Turkey though...they had it out and Turkey won. She
does a wide circle around him.

  So sorry to hear that Jesse. Can you clip her wings? or would that leave her
