- Budgies. Lotsa Budgies.
We all want what's best for our Kids, that's one reason I'm glad I only had one egg hatch when Rocky did- I have more than enough budgies (for now at least 😏), and I would have a very hard time trusting anyone I didn't know VERY well to adopt one. I would want to keep all of them! As for the tail trimming, I'll defer to an avian vet- I had just never heard of it before, but I can't see how it would harm them if done correctly. One type of wing clip I would never do is to clip only one wing. When the poor bird tries to fly it throws him way off balance and he veers way off to the side and crashes into low objects. A mean thing to do to a bird!I clip the tail feathers because my avian vet recommended it to slow down the flying so she doesn't fly into walls, and it's proven to work ever since we tried it. I never lost a bird, I found a bird, (my female). She still is technically fully flighted, just she doesn't fly SOO fast to the point where she runs into walls.
I guess that may make sense to not enforce a no-clip policy. I just want the best for the birdies, and for my baby girl, being clipped is literally her best option.
