Re: Absolutely TERRIBLE “instructional” video on wing clipping!

Clearly this is the same woman who wrote that terrible piece from "The Spruce" on why parrots make good pets. UGH/LOL!

Re: Absolutely TERRIBLE “instructional” video on wing clipping!

This woman even acknowledged that she clips only one wing so the bird feels off balance and is scared to take flight... unbelievable. I watched some of her other bird videos and she literally does everything wrong. She even said that parrots need grit in her cockatiel care video!

Wow! I'm sorry lady, but there's only one correct way to clip a baby bird-that is to NOT clip! Sad.

Re: Absolutely TERRIBLE “instructional” video on wing clipping!

Wow, just wow. My heart just ached for that poor baby grey. I could only just picture where that bird is at now as I watched her butcher that baby. Hopefully whoever took that baby home was smarter than her.

I know whenever we've taken in a bird that had a one sided clip like that, even if it was as bad as being all the way through the tertiary flights like she was talking about doing to tiels, the first thing we always do is clip the other side just as far so at least the bird is balanced. I hate when we have to do it, but a balanced bad clip is better than an unbalanced one.

Who cuts a baby that harsh even if it's an even clip and the baby has fledged? For people who want to take babies home clipped, we start with a "baby clip" and go from there. We only take 2 or maybe 3 feathers at first until the bird gets used to it, especially on a heavy chested bird like a grey or even a linnie.

That video is just sickening.
