It has been rough trying to advocate for flight lately. I see how much my birds love to fly, and I see all of the scientific information that supports a bird's drive and desire to fly, yet I have to try and always be tactful and gentle, never speaking of clipping in too demeaning a way lest I offend people and they block or ban me. I must never criticise those who clip too harshly lest they block or ban me. Even though I don't resort to name-calling, swearing, or personal insults, my words are too provocative. I'm not saying that people who clip are evil or that clipping can never be done. I'm just saying that it's not a great way to keep birds and that it is more often done for the human than the bird. Yet I am told that it is a "personal decision". Is every personal decision a good one? An informed one? One made truly for the animal rather than the human? If someone refuses to believe that something is unethical, the argument comes to a halt. "I don't think it's wrong, therefore it isn't wrong." But what if it really is bad for the animal and people are just in denial? What then? Denial is not a rational state of mind. I want people to see that birds WANT to fly and it is so much better for them. There is no reason to get into philosophical arguments about pet-keeping. If you keep the bird, keep the wings. Keep flight. They're not toys. They're living, breathing, feeling animals who would fly if you would just let them. I can't stand the argument that they don't care about flying. They do. I feel like many people understate the tragedy of rendering birds flightless so that the act can sit more comfortably with their consciences. I don't want to hurt people, I want to help them get their birds flighted. Oh well. This has been quite a personal post, but it's how I feel. We can argue all day about how clipping is "not that bad", but I can't look at Linnaeus and think that. I just can't. Disclaimer: Fly your birds INDOORS, on a HARNESS (in an area safe for it), or in an outdoor ENCLOSURE. Outdoor FREE FLIGHT requires special preparation and training with the help of an experienced mentor.

Opal is currently in his first molt, it is so interesting how you can see the contrast between his old dull feathers and new vibrant ones. Plus the feathers he's leaving at the bottom of the cage are gorgeous. . . #budgie #budgies #budgiesofinstagram #budgielove #budgielife #budgiebreeder #bird #birds #birdsofinstagram #parakeet #parakeets #cockatiel #cockatielsofinstagram #parrot #parrots #parrotsofinstagram #parrotlet #greebcheekconure #makaw #budgiebreeding #birdbreeding #chicken #birdsofaustralia #birdmemes #feather #englishbudgie #babybird #birdphotography #parrotbreeding #daniilsbudgies
