Re: Piece/pieces broken off beak

Hi Nina Thank you and i hope you are keeping well my dear. Oh i will definitely be careful and if he does seem stressed at all i will leave as its not a massive over hang. In fact in writing this i may leave and just keep an eye on it. Hopefully lots of chomping will do the trick. Thank you both so ...

Re: Piece/pieces broken off beak

Hello Lin No there is no swelling at all. Oh that is a relief! He does get the stems and i don't just pick the young leaves, he gets some old tougher ones too. But i must confess i used to chop it up for him but this last two years he has had to do it himself, so maybe this has been the problem!. I ...

Re: Piece/pieces broken off beak

Hi Lin Sorry Pics are a bit blurry, combo of him moving and my hands shaking! I think you can just see a piece missing? His beak is a bit overgrown i think? But i am hoping it will trim down its self or i will gently file with nail file. He does eat the edibles we grow for him on the slate pieces we...

Piece/pieces broken off beak

Good evening and i hope you are all well. This evening i noticed on Jonny's mouth that he has some pieces missing on the side, i am sure it was not like this yesterday. I sat feeding him flowers and was near to him on the ground and that's how i noticed it. I am really worried what this could be or ...
