Clipping wings and the debate that the subject invokes, rarely includes the parrot's mental and physical perspective. I'd like to do that now.
We've gathered and continue to gather wonderful Companion Parrot Advocates from around the world to write their stories and experiences. These are Advocates who are making a difference by working tirelessly in Advocacy itself, Parrot Rescue and Sanctuary and Avian Veterinarian Care. These stories, and real life experiences are here for you to read, share, learn and apply not only to your own flock, but to your own efforts inside your own companion parrot advocacy.
I hope you'll find ideas and inspiration while reading through these Advocate Articles. Remember, your thoughts and comments are important, they are integral to the success of our prime directive here; To give every parrot, every where, a happy home.

No matter the goal, or need inside your flock negotiations it is imperative you approach all those moments with trust and the Golden Rule. Never use deceit in those negotiations. Because a parrot remembers the lies you use, and those quick moments of deceitful success chip away at trust.
Clipping wings is a very personal choice. There are good reasons to clip and good reasons not to clip our parrot's wings. But one very important fact exists in the conversation, a clipped parrot can fly, add a little wind and that can be very scary.
