|Birds fly. Not a great revelation to a bird owner. However, birds can fly into lots of trouble if precautions are not taken by
the owner. Inside, a bird can fly into windows and mirrors, boiling liquids on the stove, and ceiling fans. Birds are prone to
a startle reflex when suddenly frightened. Even a hand-raised bird's instincts tell him to attempt to fly off when frightened.
If the bird's wings are clipped, it will flutter harmlessly to the ground-if not, this could result in the loss of a bird.
Wing clipping is one way in which you can control your bird's movements. Wing clipping is done by trimming some or all of
the primary flight feathers, which are the long feathers that help the bird gain altitude when flying. Proper clipping will limit
your bird's ability to a gentle downward glide, which will let you then pick him up and put him back on his perch.
If you've ever held your bird and felt as though eight sharp needles were piercing your skin, you probably know that nail
clipping is important. Regular clipping keeps the nails at a manageable length, protects your delicate skin and makes it
more comfortable for the bird to sit on its perch.
There are few pet groomers who are willing to clip a bird's nails and wings. However, our knowledgeable staff will gladly clip
your bird's nails and wings whenever needed, even if you bought your bird somewhere else. We do wing and nail
grooming Tuesday through Saturday, 9 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. No appointment needed.
