Re: Green Cheek Conure Clipped Wings questions!

babies should nit be clipped and learn to fly. Fledgling and that urge to overcome fear abd make the leaps to fly, and try again when fall. Is pre programed into them. And even clipped they will keep trying and much more likely to be hurt, split keel, other injuries, and after the molt, upto a year, may not ever learn well.

Also learning to fly abd having those feathers in place does help guide growth of wings, development of muscle, development if sight, and brain . They become speed thinkers who can think on the wing, processing things much faster than we can. Promotes confidence in development, abd sets the burd up for life. Later in life wing clips do nit have all these issues, tho I my self am still against them.
