Has anyone heard of a pet bird that looks like a parakeet but can't fly. When I bought them I was told they could fly and if I cut their wings they would die.

I have never heard of a parakeet that does not fly. The only parrot that I am aware of that doesn't fly is a Kakapo, but it is not a parakeet and weighs in at about 3kg. Perhaps you could post some pictures of the birds that you bought so that we have a better chance of identifying them.
