Oh my betta's I've been setting up to breed this past month. As for clipping bird's wings I could never do it.

Feel free to message me any questions, I'll try to help the best I can!

It's a big responsibility! Maybe you should think about it some more.. Also I'm pretty sure birds go to bed if you cover their cage? My friends would at night, but they still wake up at like 6am every morning. I think they are loud when they are alone, if they are in a busy room with lot's of people they tend to quiet down.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

Yeah mine goes to bed every night in her cage. Once you develop a routine (like watch some tv, cuddle on the couch, bed time) they'll learn when its time to bed. Yeah they'll realize this also means that they have to go in their cage but if they like their cage (lots of toys and room to move around with a few snacks) they wont mind. Spike will even put herself in her cage if we're up to late. Also their not so loud when your gone its more when they can hear people but can't be by or with them.
Spike is very content as long as someone is around. In fact she's sitting on my knee preening as I type this. every once in a while she reaches up and kisses my chin :P If you do get a cockatiel let me know. I can send you my private e-mail (I check it like 30 times a day) if you have any questions.

Feel free to message me any questions, I'll try to help the best I can!
