Wings uneven

Postby Cockatielsongs » Mon Jun 17, 2013 3:22 am

Hi all!
I noticed that Bandit could now somewhat fly, I walked away from him and flew about 3 meters and a half to get to me and landed on the floor, not crash landed but just landed on the floor. Unfortunately when I went to adopt him one of his wings were clipped. Should I clip his other wing so he won't be off balance and hurt himself now that he is starting to fly? When I say clip I don't mean actually clip his wings I mean clip to make both of them even?

Imo yes, make them even and then let them both grow out :D . One wing clip is dangerous as their balance will be off.
