Hello. I've determined that one of my parakeets is a little vision impaired. He sees fine while in his cage and playing with the other birds. But he has an uncontrollable desire to fly around the house. (Yes, his wings are trimmed but that does not stop him in the least.) When he flies around the house it's like a ball in a pinball machine. He hits windows, walls, knick knacks, etc. He lands behind furniture, in the trash. It drives us crazy but we can't get him to stop flying aside from locking him in his cage. All of my birds are allowed out of their cages while I am at home, so they can roam around and play. So locking this one bird inside his cage would be cruel. Any suggestions on how to help this little critter???
