    Hi Tiffany! I am new to this board... and OMG can people get
    down-right mean!!!!! I DO NOT think what you did was mean or
    crule, clipping birds wings is very common, and I myself do
    clip my birds wings. I would say just keep working with the
    other 4 and maybe they will trust you. I think buying them
    and reselling them after they are tame is a good thing. I
    love animals too, and I WOULD HAVE DONE THE SAME AS YOU DID.
    I sill can't believe what some people say on here! I am
    afraid that if people started talking to me like that I would
    go crazy all over them! Trena
