Default Wing advise.

Do you suggest clipping wings? I have seen mixed reviews, I would love some of your opinions. Stella has full flight but she is kind of difficult to train. Very skidish, and fast.

I personally am against wing clipping. To me it seems like a disability to a bird and I find that heartbreaking.
Trust takes a lot of time and patience to build up and remember each bird has their own individual personality. I don't necessarily believe that wing clipping is a solution to bonding - if anything I feel that it's more likely to break the trust further.

Yeah I was thinking about half flight because she isn't very good at flying and runs into the ceiling or wall sometimes and she is fast! But maybe you're right! My first parakeet was fully clipped before I got him and he was so easy to train. But maybe there different

I've had her for a year and I work with her she is just scared of everything.

Smile Wing advice

We have a round picnic table net that we have suspended over our bed to train
our fledglings and recovering adults, we put a sheet over the bed spread and work with our budgies with the pole for step up and landingsand to strengthen wings with soft landings and a net for walls. It usually takes just a short time
for the budgies to get basics and they of course love the treats. Best wishes, J A

I am also of the opinion not to clip wings, bonding and training is built on trust and a close relationship. many budgies are simply clipped so they can not escape, this also affects their ability to get away from any potential threat or danger and hinders the development of muscle and strength. I feel.
JoAnn has provided a great method of flight training.
Many young budgies do not learn how to fly and manoeuvre because their wings are trimmed from go.

Budgies are usually bad at flying because they need practice

When I first got my budgie girl, she was clipped, and when she first learned to fly she was terrible. She had no idea how to land and would nose-dive into the floor. Once she landed on a counter and had no idea how to stop so she just skidded right off the edge!

Now, she's an expert, and flies around with daring ease. I agree with the above posters that in my opinion, it's not advisable to clip a bird's wings. However, there are differing opinions on this and I would suggest you read this link to get more information!

I prefer my birds to be fully-flighted as well.

Some people tape sheets a few inches out from the walls around the bird-safe room until their budgies become adept at maneuvering so they don't crash into the wall and injure themselves.

However, as this topic has been covered many times and can become quite heated as some individuals have very strong opinions on the matter, I'm going to ask that you refer to the link Star has kindly provided for you and I'm going to close this thread.

I believe the pros and cons are described very well in the linked thread and it ultimately comes down to a personal decision.
