My daughter has a weeroo and wants to get its wings clipped? Is this necessary or just something she wants to do to stop it flying away?
Pet's Gender: Male

other friends its seems to just be a practical thing to keep the bird from flying away
Hi,Trimming of the wings isn't a necessary act for good health. But, in saying that, it can help keep them from injuring themselves. Wing trimming prevents sustained flight. Done well, they can glide down. Not being able to fly keeps them from getting into ceiling fans, windows, and getting away outside.
