Lightbulb Should my Budgie's Wings be clipped right after I get it?


Backstory:
I'm planning to get 1 Male Budgie and hope to tame it. But I am concerned if its wings should be clipped right after I get him. Even with a Vet, won't the bird be upset with how its handled when its getting its wings clipped immediately when I get him.

Also, I'm very new to birds as pets, though I have 2 dogs now. That's why I'm choosing to have his wings clipped to have a sense of control and safety pre-caution for the bird.


Thank you so much! Comments and tips for new Budgie parents are more than welcome!

Wing clipping is pretty controversial, there are ups and downs to both. It really comes down to personal opinion, but sometimes clipping is better depending on the home you live in.

Here's a link that might help: To Clip, Or Not To Clip - Cute Little Birdies Aviary

Hi! to Talk Budgies

bparakett is correct. Wing Clipping is a controversial topic with strong opinions by many members.
As such, it is best it not be discussed on the forum.

To Clip, Or Not To Clip - Cute Little Birdies Aviary

You do need to keep in mind that clipping your budgie's wings will not be a safety measure when you have dogs.
Whenever the bird is out of the cage, the dogs need to be safely secured in a completely different room no matter what.

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

You'll find most of your basic questions about budgies and caring for them will have been answered after you've read through all of them.

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as PhotoBucket and follow the steps in these instructions:
https://talkbudgies.com/how-guides/17...otobucket.html

For gender and/or mutation help - Lighting and Angle DOES matter

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.
