  1. Thank you neoow for your response. I have decided not to clip Gaby's wings. Alto its more work having a fully flighted bird, I do believe its much better overall for the health of the bird.
  2. Thank you Talon for the reply. Sorry to hear about the one starting to pluck. It must be very difficult trying to give even attention to all 3. Hope things will turn out for you soon.

  6. Hi Everyone... I'm new here from Southern Calif. I just got my African Grey named Gaby. She is 3 1/2 months old. I've had her for 2 weeks now. We are practicing Recall. She is getting better and better with each session. The one problem I have , there is a hanging light fixture where we fly her and it has become a magnet to her. I do give her treats, but she is never that hungry. I don't like starving her so she goes more for the treats. I do have a question.... I am concerned down the road about her plucking her feathers.
