Fully Flighted

A bird being "fully flighted" means an owner not trimming a pet bird’s flight feathers, therefore allowing pet birds full flight indoors.


Not trimming a bird’s flight feathers, therefore allowing companion birds full flight indoors.


Owners are cautioned that they must be able to keep a bird safe prior to allowing flight inside the house. Therefore, they must have total control over all outside doors and have “parrot-proofed” their home to the best of their ability. Just like any parrot that is out of the cage, fully flighted parrots also need to be supervised at all times.

Known from experience; my 'babies' are free flighted, but I have learned that the time they are out of the cage needs to be supervised ... they will get into anything AND everything is theirs to play w/
