Wings that is. Birdie's wings have never been clipped, but I'm thinking about having it done. She loves to fly and flying is how she gets around the house and porch. She's only caged at night and if we leave the house. But she's ruined a lampshade and is making quick work of a wooden dresser. AND she's escaped twice. Both times she checked into nearby motels and we got her back. My dilemma is that I'm afraid it will change her personality. I think it would break my heart to see her trying to fly and fluttering to the ground. My Poodle, on the other hand, might like that A LOT! I feel like I'd be doing it for us, not her. As tame and people friendly as she is, she's still a bird. I feel like it's akin to de-clawing a cat.
