Subject:Re: Nanday Conure Parrot
Message:Hi Rosemary: My rescue, Hootie, also likes to fly and although there are several philosophys out there about clipping,not clipping. I found that clipping Hootie shows some remarkable restraint in aggressive behaviors. We've only clipped once so far, but are aiming for it again. She becomes much more subdued in behavior (attacking visitors, etc.) We are blessed that Hootie isn't pulling out feathers or other behaviors that usually come with a wild rescue. We've also created a foraging station to keep her busy when we're not able to be with her. Hope this helps.
