    Well, I guess we all know who is suffereing from PMS now don't we.
    Did you read your response? How dumb was that, a childproof home
    is just as safe for a bird, it is all about the training and how
    you take care of them. And how do you know how many birds I have
    even seen? If this is a power trip for you than enjoy, I just want
    bird owners with a heart to understand that they do NOT have to
    clip wings no matter what people like you or un educated vets think.
