New house. Poor birds.

This place has really high ceilings downstairs. The ceiling fan (that doesn’t work) is at least nine feet overhead. When we moved in, the girls were in a tiny cockatiel cage, bored to death and flying everywhere.

Jak made it to the ceiling fan.

I walked upstairs where I could see above the ceiling fan. She flew up to me.

It was time to clip their beautiful wings back so they would not gain altitude.
I love their independence and flying ability. It breaks my heart to clip them.

But, it was done easily. And Dismal figured out how to build a single cage from their double wide flight cage.

Gently clipped, full size cage, protected floor from ikea at $12 AS IS section, and $4 to protect the walls with a vinyl shower curtain from Ross.

Things are going well until their next molt and I re-gauge their flying precociousness.
