The main reason why bird owners trim the wings for their pet birds is mainly to prevent pet birds from flying away accidentally. Did I trim the feathers of my bird’s wings? I did but I don’t do it now. Whether it is necessary to shorten the feathers of the bird’s wings is always a controversial topic. In this post, I am not going to teach you how to cut the bird wings because incorrect or careless trimming will endanger birds’ lives. Instead, I want to share with you the reasons why you should or shouldn’t trim the wings, plus the pros and cons of your action.
