This topic is like a out of control roller coaster, with its ups and downs and twists
and turns, with no real advice that was initially asked for.
As everyone has their own personal opinions, wing options, and reasons for keeping
their birds safe, I feel we should all respect the first and utmost concern that these
birds are taken care of and that reasonable precautions are taken to keep the birds
out of harms way. We will never truly agree on how we all care for our birds, and many
a discussion can arise on rights and wrongs. That's what's so great about the forums.
Advice........not bickering and being judgemental. This serves no purpose in caring
for our birds.
