I am on the wall when it comes to clipping. Maxx came to me severely clipped. I am going to let his flight feathers grow out and take it from there. I think I will keep him just lightly clipped.
My last bird, a Scarlet Chested Parakeet was fully flighted, He could fly from room to room and knew every inch of it. I counted one time and he was in flight for around 25 seconds. 2 full rotations through the whole house before landing. One day by freak accident the patio door was left open while he was out and about, and that was all it took. I never saw my little baby again.
That type of bird needs to fly, so I let him. Maxx likes to be around me too much, so I think the situation would be different with him.
