The men had to clip the hens' wings on one side so they wouldn't be able to fly over the poultry net. The most difficult (and amusing) part of the process was catching the birds. After catching one, Jacob held it in his lap, while Daddy spread its wing and cut the 10 long feathers with a pair of scissors. The hens didn't seem to mind much, as clipping the feathers doesn't hurt them. The hens obviously liked sitting in Jacob's lap because they didn't want to hop down when their turn was over. : )
