A new thread won´t make me give you a different answer.Aside from the fact that brds should fly because they were born with wings..
1. You have cat that you said ¨wants to attack 24/7¨ so you shoul not clip so that should the two be in the same room, and the cat attacks, the birds at least have a chance to fly away instead of being a snack and you finding a pile of feathers and a beak.
2. You want to breed, flighted birds are the best breeders.
3.. Cockatiels are prone to laying problems namely egg-binging, flight can help keep them healthy and lessen the chances.
4. It doesn´t matter how small your room is, you could live in a cupboard under the stairs and still it wouldn´t justify clipping the birds wings.
5. You just got these birds, and you want to build trust... to start that process you are thinking about handicapping them... this is not a way to build trust, but to lose it.
I know these blog posts have been shared in the forum by @Lady Jane , but I thought a thread with all parts together would be handy. Before clipping your birds wings, please read all 6 parts of the blog by Pamela Clark; Part One: Parrots, Flight, and Humans – Pamela Clark, CPBC Part Two...forums.avianavenue.com
they can get hurt in my room it is sooo small and i have budgies and 2 cockatiels.It’s not that we say no; it’s a pretty controversial topic. For me, my bird came with clipped wings. Does that effect him emotionally? It appears not. Physically? He can fly short distances, slowly decreasing in height. I’d say not to unless you’re in an area where he could easily hurt himself flying, then you can make that decision. If you do clip, it grows back in about 4-6 months.
I clipped my birds wings against the other members advice and it was not a good idea, he seemed sad, and didn’t play with his toys or try to fly a lot I definitely don’t recommend it and I won’t be doing it againi have said in other posts that i need to clip their wings but you guys say no.............
This excuse to disable your birds honestly makes no sense to any reasonable thinking knowledgeable bird keeper at all.they can get hurt in my room it is sooo small and i have budgies and 2 cockatiels.
