It seems that wing clipping is the way to go. I do want tame birds even tho for the most part i leave them to their own devices. This may seem like a goofy concern, but, now after about 2 months of flying around wherever and whenever they wanted, if i clip their wings will they get depressed or frustrated? If not, i'll make an appt. with my dog groomer and go get their wings cut and work with them till they grow back in and then determine if they are friendly enuf to allow to fly again. Would it be reasonable to cut their wings when they start to show too much "non domesticity" and then cut them and re-tame them? Or would this be too stressful on the birds? thank you.
