    You have been given very good advice from both Greylady and Rick.
    Both of them have also suggested you cut her wings. You are not
    going to be able to keep her on a playstand or a cagetop if she is
    left with the freedom of flight. You must clip those wings. Once
    you do it you will be amazed at the difference.
