Quaker flying ban in Ohio?

Postby Aloysius » Thu Jan 24, 2013 2:48 pm

I live in Ohio (as you can probably deduce from the title) and am curious about the law which says you must have your Quaker parrot clipped to own it. I couldn't find the exact wording of the law anywhere, so I don't know how much I should clip my Quaker's wings. Does anyone know about that law? Thanks for the help. :thumbsup:

wow i looked up the law it was passed in 96. it says you have to clip to own a quaker. i would have to move.when i adopted my dog the city i live in was trying to pass a law banning pitbulls so the shelter i adopted from fixed her papers so her liscense just said shepard mix to prevent them coming to drag her out of my home to put her down. very sad when laws hurt responsible pet owners.

I'm usually a law abiding citizen but.....

Yes I would have to move or just rethink owning a quaker, I couldn't possibly disable a bird. That said you already have yours. I cannot tell you to break the law as there is a chance that your bird could be seized if it was found to be flighted. Do people actually go around checking these things though? Do you know of people (even those you know well) who may report you? What about the vet? Do you have neighbours who may be unhappy with the noise which may arouse suspicion? Are there any cases of people being prosecuted for having flighted quakers? Could you get away with a very very light trim so the bird can still fly as near to normally as possible?

What a bas***d you have to make such a choice :(

That's what I was thinking marie. Next time I go to the Parrot breeder I got my parrot from I'm going to ask them about that. Shiloh enjoys flying and really, it doesn't seem to make a whole lot of difference whether she's clipped or not. She could still fly out a window (If we left them open without a screen, which we don't). I would have to do the trim myself though, because I doubt the bird breeders would do something like that. :roll:

Yes, the only way you can keep quakers in Ohio is if you deprive them of flight... so sad and unfair.
