While our birds are unclipped, we have set our household up expressly with our birds' safety in mind. They have their own room and are never left unattended to get into things. NEVER! They are kept in travel carriers when they're outdoors and travelling, and don't get taken out unless they're in an environment we've decided is safe for them. There is more information about wingclipping at the bottom of this page.
