when i went to pick my parrot up the other day the breeder asked me if i wanted his wings clipped so he couldnt fly into windows etc and hurting himself,stuppidly i hadnt done researched wing clipping and thought he was going to put some sort of clip on its wing,then when he got the scissors and cut a massive chunk of feathers out of the birds wing all his feathers fell to the floor and my heart sank and i have felt sooo guilty ever since
i have been told they will grow back in a few months but i just dont think i could get that done again but then i dont really want him flying into things and hurting himself or flying into the kids faces or something or escaping as with 5 kids they are always in and out of the doors
im so confused and feel so guilty about it
are there any other owners that have a parrot whose wings arent clipped?
would appreciate any advice
