Why do you let the babies fly?
We have learned through our continuing discussions with bird behaviourists that by allowing parrots to fledge (fly) during their development they become much more secure birds and pets. The babies gain great confidence with flight and more importantly, they learn the skill of landing.
All flighted birds can fly; it is instinctive—But the skill and confidence of landing must be learned, and this is done quickest and easiest during fledging. Over the next few weeks of this controlled flight, we perform gradual clips to prepare for their life in their permanent home.
