    Flighted vs. Trimmed

    Hi friends! Posting a poll wondering if your bird's flight feathers are grown in or trimmed. I'd love to hear the reasoning for either side and to hear a little bit about your feather babies :) My little one (Piña) was trimmed when I got her a couple weeks ago. I'm wondering what the...

    Help - It this normal? (Loss of Appetite from Wing-Trim)

    Loss of Appetite from Wing-Trim ??!!?! After a long time of debating pros & cons of flighted feathers vs. trimmed wings, I trimmed my Senegal parrot’s wings.

    Parents want to clip my GCC's wings

    With the holidays and moving cross country due to a job, things have been extremely hectic here, and my GCC Gordi has been on a lot of roadtrips all over the place.

    Need help with flight training!

    I got Charlie at a breeder, and I thought they let him fledge before clipping his wings. Well, I was wrong... He is going trough his first molt right now and his wing feathers almost completely grew back in already! He flies super well and even fast, but there is one single yet important...

    Pictures Untame, bonded lovebird pair destroy everything in sight

    Hi all. About a month and a half ago, we got two lovely bonded lovebirds, Chino and Chai. They are extremely affectionate with one another, and my husband and I don't mind that they may never truly bond with us. We let them out of their cage every day for pretty much the whole day, only closing...
