How do you trim the wings to keep them from flying off?

See the article at https://poultry.extension.org/articles/poultry-behavior/wing-clipping/.

Wing clipping involves clipping the primary feathers on one wing, about midway down the feathers. This makes it very difficult for the birds to fly. The procedure needs to be repeated after each molt because the clipped wing feathers will be lost and replaced with new unclipped feathers.
