Oh my goodness, no. Or at least clipping should NEVER be a standard practice. It should only be used when the health of the bird would require clipping (very uncommon situation). Did you say it was a big pet store, or are you getting them directly from a breeder? Some breeders or stores are maybe choosing to do this so that if THEY accidentally let the bird out, they can catch them. But this is a horrible reason to clip wings.Thank you! This picture doesn't quite show her true color, but her tummy has a bit of a bluish tint that really made her stand out for me. I was thinking there was a tiiiint of purple on the cere when i picked her out and my gut said boy, compared to the others in her tank. But once I got her home I was like...oh no I think its a girl lol
is that weird?? All three of my birds are clipped from the store/breeder. I was told it was so they don't get hurt if they happen to get out and fly into anything dangerous. I was thinking every bird comes clipped and then flies after their next molt.
