Gawd yes, there's more:
Another yank, like yourselves, so I'm not being racist.
If you would like a bird which doesn't fly, buy a penguin!
Can't say I agree with wing clipping in parrots unless it is
absolutely necessary e.g you are introducing a hen bird to a
cock bird of a species where mate harrassment/killing is a well
known problem e.g cockatoo's and some of the amazons. Even then
I wouldn't like to think this was permanent. We have birds that
have had severe wing clips of a permanent nature from previous
homes and they look as though they have been butchered. One
senegal hen only has a small portion of wing left and will never
fly again. It's an awful thing to see.
Right now it really is good night - I have exams next week and I
spent ages compiling this info!
Night everyone, and happy reading
