@  jaspers mum : (31 August 2014 - 11:29 PM) I'm off to bed soon folks, night all. catch up soon, good luck with the babies martin
@  jaspers mum : (31 August 2014 - 11:27 PM) you can easily tell as if they are really short you can see their tails. like on a grey the wings normally cover the red tail. on clipped birds they dont
@  Nikki h : (31 August 2014 - 11:27 PM) Put into google images of clipped birds
@  Nikki h : (31 August 2014 - 11:27 PM) You will be able to see instantly and the flights will be a lot shorter
@  parrotmartin : (31 August 2014 - 11:26 PM) Is it easy or hard to spot?
@  parrotmartin : (31 August 2014 - 11:26 PM) I need to know how to spot if a birds wings have been clipped
@  jaspers mum : (31 August 2014 - 11:26 PM) yes I understand what you're saying. maybe in future you could look for an older bird that needs a home, they can be just as friendly :)
@  Arina : (31 August 2014 - 11:25 PM) or not as far as i can remember
@  parrotmartin : (31 August 2014 - 11:25 PM) ill have to owe him the £90 but ill not be going back to him ever
@  jaspers mum : (31 August 2014 - 11:24 PM) we went to Melton mowbray for jasper. our cockatiel was bought from a shop years ago
@  parrotmartin : (31 August 2014 - 11:24 PM) Id rather have a breeder that if he says has hand reared them, be tame without thier wings being clipped if you get me
@  jaspers mum : (31 August 2014 - 11:23 PM) because they can't fly though they will become used to you, so tame in a way. don't worry about them or they will pick up on this
@  parrotmartin : (31 August 2014 - 11:22 PM) why is it soooo hard to find a decent breeder?
@  Arina : (31 August 2014 - 11:21 PM) no it's not
@  jaspers mum : (31 August 2014 - 11:21 PM) I know I though arina was still here, sorry
@  parrotmartin : (31 August 2014 - 11:21 PM) I dont like how he claims they are tame yet they are only tame because they cannot fly away
@  jaspers mum : (31 August 2014 - 11:21 PM) I really wouldn't know as not had a cockatiel for years martin
@  parrotmartin : (31 August 2014 - 11:21 PM) I have realised that now too late :(
@  parrotmartin : (31 August 2014 - 11:20 PM) its Martin, Jaspers Mum
@  jaspers mum : (31 August 2014 - 11:20 PM) these area babies though, you'll have to watch them when they're out playing etc
