  1. When you've quite finished being rude and insulting to members who took the time and trouble to answer you perhaps you could contact admin to delete your membership. All the people who answered you are experienced parrot keepers and breeders, if you don't like the site and you can't keep a civil tounge in your head then leave. I'm sure many members found your request for wingclipping offensive, it's a deliberate act of disabling a bird which could lead to permanate disability if not done correctly or if the bird gets injured in a fall. Going back to your photo of the Grey on the dogs back, it's clear to see that neither the dog or parrot were happy about this, it's quite obvious the bird was put on the dog for a photo oppotunity. You have alot to learn about parrot keeping, I hope for you birds sake you don't learn the hard way. Sorry to all the other members, I did really mean Gem but thought I better not single her out as that would have been a bit unfair. On every forum there will always be one that will think they have second sight in every matter and then spread the word, gossip it used be called. Thanks for all the support and private messages from all the other members who really make this site what it is, a resource for all who need help and education when dealing with our feathered friends.

  2. Thanks Louise, I have had both birds clipped before and just the bear minimum of feather's cut (George could still fly). The vet was from Africa himself and had some parrot experience, but unfortunately he is no longer available to help me this time. I do not trust myself to ever clip their wings and also would not like them to associate me with the process either. If I could I would build an area that they could safely fly but at my home this is impossible. They used to enjoy more freedom clipped and were much better behaved, now we have more biting as jealousy will often break out between the two birds and they will fly at each other also grandma has been bitten more times than I can remember and she loves the birds. Thanks for your reply and I will consider my options and hope do the best I can for both birds and their human companions. Mike
  3. I wanted help, I have found none so far only a few people who have to respond to every posting no matter what the subject or their abilities, I was hoping for more from this site, my mistake. A wise person has something to say a fool just has to say something, don't worry your not alone. Mike
  4. That's all you will be doing if you put a parrot on a dogs back just for a funny photo. If you can't handle the responsibility of fully flighted birds then the stuffed option would have been a better choice. :roll: You can only see the photo not how the two actually came together. I can honestly say I have never experienced so many hypocrites on one website. They are birds that you keep in captivity and you express concern on their ability to fly? I was going to do full page objective reply on the pro and cons of clipped and un-clipped caged parrots with large wingspans but I felt after reading the replies it might go over the heads of some of you. Good day, enjoy you narrow minded and anal existence. Mike
  5. No problem, I have sorted everything out now, I am getting them both stuffed and mounted in positions of flight. Thanks for all your help. Mike
  6. Hi, anyone out there who can clip the wings of our 2 African Greys? We are in Alton, Hampshire and would pay for the service of course. Mike
  7. Good news, George is back. Found surrounded by cat's and rescued by a couple of local girls. They took him to a vet in Farnham, nurse who works there took him home and cared for him for over a week. My wife had put posters everywhere and one of the girls who found him called us today and told us of his location and we tracked him down to the nurse who was taking care of him. Now missing him so much we had bought a baby grey yesterday and now have 2 parrots! I did say to my daughter now we have got a new bird we would be told told that George is safe and well, how right was I? Thanks for all the nice support from you all. Mike and family

  9. We lost our African Grey on Friday 12th June 7.30pm. From Thorpe Gardens in Alton. Had him clipped ready for the sumer and was told he would only be able to fly downwards, yeah right he was off like a bullet right over the roof tops.
