Just keep an eye on it, to see if it gets worse. That is a pretty big chip, I dont think it would be wise to have it ground down. Beaks grow all the time, so eventually it wil disappear . Lincoln is so cute in that fist pic.

Re: Chipped lower beak

Lincoln is the cutest, now if only he'd let feathers grow in!

Re: Chipped lower beak

It will work itself out.

Not to worry.

Re: Chipped lower beak

Could it still be a problem with calcium?

Re: Chipped lower beak

Did you ever end up using that avi-glo? I swear I could see and feel Timnehs beak and claws growing faster. Not sure if it was just from a better diet in general or adding a little of that to her routine. She eats so little of it I wonder if it really could do anything but I did seem to notice a difference. Claws got razor sharp and after trimming two weeks they were razors again. Better for me to let her wear em down on her perch.

Re: Chipped lower beak

I'll try giving him that again.. I always give a lil too much and he starts toe tapping so I gotta take him off. Finding it hard to balance it.

Re: Chipped lower beak

Timneh still eats mashed so I mix it in with that. Most fruits and veggies on her skewer are thrown to the ground and chop ignored.
