The majority of pet bird keepers that prefer their bird’s wings clipped offer a similar response when asked about their motivation to remove the function that defines a species.
“I don’t want him to fly into a wall/window/glass table” are typical responses.
I’ll then ask “so your parents never let you learn to drive because they feared you would drive into a garage door/road median/privacy fence”?
“Well, we all took driver’s ed” is typically regurgitated.
This is me speaking aloud.
To be clear, you brought what is literally a descendant of velociraptors with 100 million years of instinctual expectations, into your home and expected that by lopping off a dozen wing feathers everything will well for the next 5 or 6 decades – do I have that right”?
