I appreciate that for the "average" bird owner who sounds like a
liability, the bird needs to be controlled. But isn't it obvious
that someone like this shouldn't be looking after a bird? I don't
see why the bird should suffer its freedom being taken away for
I apologise if the original post sounded dictatorial, I didn't
mean for it to come across like that and I'm sorry if that's why
people took offence.
The question I have for you is that you are obviously not the
average bird owner, you have experience and knowledge. So why do
you clip your birds? You are evidently responsible enough to keep
them flighted so why not? Don't you think the birds would enjoy
more flying ability? That's all I want to ask.
