Hi Kimberly, my Chippy came to me with his wings clipped too. I'm not sure how old Cheeko is, but Chippy was about 5 months old before he molted and finally grew his wing feathers in. Since a bird is hard wired for flight, the inability to fly is confusing and scary and just wrong. He doesn't understand why he can't fly since he is obviously old enough. Well we know why, but he doesn't so now he's a bit frightened. Chippy would occasionally fall/flutter to the floor and he'd find the lowest perch available and just sit there quietly till I would rescue him. He did not like this handicap at all. I set him up on the table with lots of gym like toys to play with and he kept pretty close to his cage, his safety net. When he finally was able to fly, it took him a little time to trust himself, but in no time at all he was flying free and happy and secure.
