    So let me get this straight, if you had a child, would you completely
    shut them off from the parts of your house that may potentially be a
    danger to them? Well then, where on earth would they be able to be?
    Instead of sheltering them, one would hope that you would teach them
    to be safe in their environment just like I have taught my macaw. He
    knows when to fly away from a situation or all I have to say is "no,
    cage" and he is right back to his cage! My bird enjoys getting back to
    his "natural" surroundings by having the ability to go outside with me
    and fly(or stretch his legs so to speak!)
