  • Reply AJ O'Malley May 8, 2019 at 11:27 pm

    Do NOT clip your birds wings. It is unnatural and makes the bird depressed. They are built to fly. If you can't handle a flying pet, get a different pet.

  • Reply Alex Henretty June 11, 2019 at 7:00 pm

    Clipping should be optional. I admit I had my birds clipped for a while, only so he could get used to our house. Otherwise he would keep flying into walls to the point he was bleeding. I didn't clip it to the point he couldn't fly at all, only to where when he would fly, he would glide down to safety. He could still fly short distance until he got used to his surroundings.

  • Reply Emmie Cookie July 6, 2019 at 12:01 am

    You shouldn’t really clip a birds does sometimes clam up muscles or so i’ve heard from people with birds. When i get my first bird, i refuse to clip to wings unless i need to, or my mom gets annoyed with it 😂

    My cockatiel likes me to pet her inside of her cage and loves to come out when it’s time for her to and she steps up when she’s out but when I try with her to step up when she is in her cage she freaks out but she will step up on command outside. Any tips on how to solve this??

    There's no need to clip a birds wings. It's cruel and causes the bird frustration & affects their balance. Many birds are hand tame & also free fly. It just means a bit more effort, which, if you love your build, will be worth it.

  • Reply Bunvra July 30, 2019 at 10:15 am

    You don’t need to clip the bird wings, if it trusts you, and you can just trim it’s wings so it can still fly but not as high.

  • Reply All4Gamez July 30, 2019 at 1:53 pm

    Why does the wings be clipped thats cruel im never doing that they need to fly its good for their lungs

  • Reply Kenan Kahya August 10, 2019 at 5:34 am

    If you have two parakeet , unfortunately they won’t talk. There should be no mirrors in the cage. The bird that sees himself in the mirror will not be jealous and talk. For each free time, repeat the same word repeatedly over the course of the day. You will see your budgie start talking after a while.

    The easiest way to make the parakeet speak is to record the words you want the bird to say on the phone and put them next to the cage. The bird will try to speak as he hears the words.

  • Reply DynaMike TNT August 10, 2019 at 7:46 pm

    actually its hard to not know that fact at the end of the video because anyone who doesnt have a bird wouldnt have watched that far and anyone who does have a bird already knew that

    thanks for the advice though 🙂

  • Reply Al Ozelmas August 11, 2019 at 12:34 pm

    Well most of you live in the states where most birds lose the fear factor to humans due to being bred in captivity… Try that with untame birds caught in the wild without having to at least trim them one time

    One of our family friend’s has a bird and they had a graduation party at a beach. We went their and they brought their bird, they took it out of the cage and It never flies away, it just stays with you and will go on your shoulder and lets you hold it. It even fell asleep on my hands and I only met it that day. I would say that was the tamest bird I have ever been with. That made me want a bird and my dad really liked it also. The only reason we cant get a bird is because my cat eats birds and chipmunks so it would be really bad if we got a bird.

    Why is everyone saying it’s bad to clip their wings, they grow back, and anyways if you don’t and you try to tame them they’ll keep on flying around and hitting the wall and injuring their wings and other body parts, it’s better to clip them than having your cockatiel getting injured…

    My first bird came with a friend, and my friend bought that bird. When she was over and Indigo and Tango (their names) were together, they would come out with no problem as long as the other came out. We did all the steps except for the stick one. Then, my friend had to leave so she took Tango with her, and then left. A few days, my bird was just chirping at the mirror. Then he started to dislike me, he would cower whenever I tried to pick him up. I had to grab him out of the cage, which he would bite me a lot. (But I had to do that because the dog was near.) He always flies away from me, very rarely he stays on my finger or shoulder.
