Re: Please help.. something wrong with birds beak

Good to hear he is not in pain! I know a parrot's beak is connected to the bird's upper mandible, so there's no nerves in the beak itself. (as illustrated in the photo below)

Try to imagine your bird's beak like that, and maybe you can decide if it's "just" a crack, or the whole mandible is misplaced? In this case, avian vet... ASAP! as the others have already said. A vet will at least be able to give you a qualified answer. None of us here are vets. Why aren't any vets joined to this forum? That would seriously be awesome!

Re: Please help.. something wrong with birds beak

It's a bit hard to see on the photos, but it looks like it's both the upper and lower part of the beak that is "disconnected"? Can you confirm this? Something is definitely not right here.

Poor thing!

A family friend(CAV) will not post on any forum. He said he found the environment too hostel and felt he was being attacked and challenged for every post he ever commented on! I am 99% it wasn't this forum, but he won't say!

Re: Please help.. something wrong with birds beak

I talked to a vet tech. She said theyre closed for the weekend and the doctor isnt available to see new patients after hours. I was told to try back monday, however she cant check the schedule so shes not sure when they could see him Im going to buy him some baby food today so he can atleast eat comfortably for now

Re: Please help.. something wrong with birds beak

No it isnt.. Same conure though! That issue turned out to just be hardened on food.
