    Ok, first of all, how does one "mutilate" a subject? Second, I think all the angry talk
    is exactly why we don't get anywhere with this subject. I would love to sit down with all
    of you in a room and really talk about this subject. I feel that wing-clipping is such a
    serious matter and it is one that needs to be worked out with research, knowledge, and a
    better understanding of parrot psychology and health. On the facts, I do agree with scott
    and patsy - we must start thinking outside of the opinions of a few, rather uneducated
    parrot book writers, like mattie sue athan for example. I don't mean to pick on her in
    particular, but she has been one of the most vocal and well-published advocates of
    clipping wings. I really think that we could have a great discussion if everyone would
    reaad the article at and talk about the information that is
    presented instead of just writing it off. -magia
