Re: Beak wear question

It would be rare for a Beak to wear quickly working on wood that is normally included as part of toys. Beaks are designed to natural wear as they use them. With Companion Parrots the problem is over-growth of the Beak from little to no active use.

The shape of the Beak looks proper, not overly long, nor overly short. Nor is their any specific wear locations one would see if a specific area was being worked hard.

If you have felt your Parrot's Beak in the past, repeat it now! Are there any areas that feel soft or thin? If yes, you need to proceed to your Avian Vet.

FYI: Great Photos!

In each Morning's early light; there is a promise, an Amazon makes!
