Default wrong wing clipping

hi everyone,

someone brought me a budgie today coz they bought the bird and didnt like it so it wasnt fun any more how cruel is that. anyway they clipped his wings wrong as she said he came home with clipped wings but they did it wrong. he cant fly only thing can do is sitting. how can i fix his wings and wait until first molting?

i heard some breeders around gold coast they clipped the wings so bird cant fly and they sell to people like they hand tamed. birds are scared to fly thats why they sitting on your fingers.

Poor birdie. At least they have someone to look after them now.
I suspect you'll have to wait till it's flight feathers regrow. I'd arrange it's cage so that it can walk/climb around and so that it not on a high perch it might fall from.

I am happy this poor budgie has found a loving forever home. Hopefully they haven't done permanent damage to the wings, you could take the budgie to an avian vet for a wellness check or wait and see if they grow back normally. In the mean time have lots of ladders and rope swings for him to walk and climb around on
