Post Work with and clip Leilain and Stard

Please no rude comment about me clipping my birds wings thank you.So I really need help with Leilani and Stardust please. The one day I had them both out,and Stardust kept hitting every thing. Thanks goodness she did not hurt her self. So how many feathers on each side should be clip. I want them to fly low not high and glide down lightly down. So I can tame them both. Thanks everyone.Please do not get mad at me, I really got nerves after Stardust hit my celling, tv, mirror, and wall. I want them safe please. I still upset what happen to Olivia when wing were full and flew away. Also need help taming them too.

Amy how do I answer this?

A budgie with all Primaries, if fit healthy and was left to fully fledge will still be able to fly. Gain enough height and fly away from you.
You know I have commented elsewhere how I feel. The most likely reason Stardust keeps flying into things is that he was not aloud to fully fledge before he was clipped, back in the past. Or he is panicking when aloud out.
I assume you have asked else where. what did others have to say?


A tribute to my lost ones. RIP.

Unfortunately a clipped budgie can still fly and get fairly high up if they need to so clipping them doesn't do much but slow them down a little.

Why don't you try training one budgie at a time in the wash/bathroom for 20 mins a day everyday. Since a wash/bathroom is smaller and there isn't any place for a bird to fly away from you, you can work at hand taming without having to chase the bird all over a larger room.

It will take longer to train your birds one on one in a wash/bathroom daily but the more time you put into training alone with one bird the better results you will have.

Good luck.

For the window I use bird stickers and washable window chalk.



(Please click to enlarge)

But I can't understand why the bird flew into walls.
Are you sure that her eyes are healthy?
Was there enough light in the room?

Clipping a bird will only decrease your chances of winning them over, from my personal experience. It is forceful 'training' and dominance. Training needs to be on mutual grounds. Just start off very slow, even if it's just in the cage

If they don't like hands in and around their cage, try just opening the door and letting them come out on their own terms. Get yourself a clicker and target. It's my golden ticket to winning a bird over

She is flying into things because she is panicking and more interested in escaping, is my call.
I deal with so many birds and have none of this sort of thing going on once they are comfortable with their surroundings.
I never will consider clipping is going to work on a small bird that has been allowed to fully develop it's flight skills.
But in this particular case it will be most likely as I said above. Or it was handicapped too early in life and never learned to fly. Taming it now it is older will be a challenge to even a good trainer, I suspect.
I want will never win over time, love and patience. I am sure we would all like to find short cuts.
