I am having a problem. I let my parakeets wings grow in and they have a fun time zooming around my room and making up and playing their own little games. This pleased me LOL. Now, however, i am having a problem. It seems that the longer they have wings, the less tame they are becoming. The biggest problem with this is getting them to go back into their cages when i need to go to work, especially if they don't want to.(They used to "step up", now they just fly off). Should i clip their wings and re-tame them by handling them alot again or should i just buy a net? If i get a net, how is the best way to re-tame them without clipping their wings? Thank you.
