Well, after spending time watching and learning, I decided to clip the birds primary flight feathers - not so much for snoopy but more for charlie as he is like a ferrari, he even walks twice as fast as snoopy.
Charlie reminds me of a swift in flight changing direction so fast.

Anyway I clipped the first 4 feathers just under and inch of the wing line, so I will see how we get on.

Snoopy seems more like a harrier, he just goes up and then doesnt know what todo! mind you he has lost his tail feathers they were a bit broken and chewed from where I got him.

Sounds like they needed to be clipped....luckily Willow is quite a good flyer, and doesn't go wizzing around like a ferrari...LOL. :p

Lol. I told myself before I got a bird i would only clip their wings if I was 1000% sure on how to do it. It sounds like your little ferrari bird will slow down now...:p

thanks guyz, :D

It has slowed him, but he still a devil.
Very interesting having two birds, seeing such differences in them is lovely.

Snoopy is slightly heavier than Charlie, and dordles around the cage slowly, charlie goes up n down like hes dropped something he shouldnt have:eek:

Perch wars have begun too, charlie is normally the bad boy, but snoopy sometimes ignores him, hes such a softie.

Now where can I fit some more cockatiels, lol:wacko:
