Re: African Grey died less 2-3 from when we received him

Is it normal for a Breeder to cut off one of the birds claws to order DNA? Kira is our other bird we have, and recently we got DNA since the family who sold us did not know for sure if it was male or female and the Vet did not cut anything. Kira (DNA tested male) and Kira doesn’t have band and has all her claws.

Re: African Grey died less 2-3 from when we received him

Sometimes a vet will cut a nail short (if that is what you mean by "claw") to get blood for DNA testing, but they can also draw blood or pull a feather. Cutting a nail is just one way to do it.

In that picture, is your bird completely missing a nail? It is hard to see, but even on a nail that is cut short, you can still see plenty of the nail remaining...They should never cut the nail off completely.

Re: African Grey died less 2-3 from when we received him

Not uncommon for parrots to be missing a toe or two!

Re: African Grey died less 2-3 from when we received him

Based on the photo, I would classify that as a lost of the first or second joint behind the nail. I'm not aware of any medical reason for an Avian Professional to remove a joint unless it was damaged or seriously infected.

If connected with medical records, such a loss can be used as an identification marker.

Re: African Grey died less 2-3 from when we received him

Unfortunately Ana is not willing to provide any information on Coco, or DNA test results, and I don't know if was cut by Ana or avian professional either. I received him just like that, and since she said she did his DNA I was wondering if this is how she did...we got no medical info from Ana besides the one she called F, Coco ... in this case we don't know if it was our Coco test anyway. Per our Drs medical records Coco was sick for long time.

Re: African Grey died less 2-3 from when we received him

Some parrots are either born with a missing nail or have them fall out during growth. One of my TAGs was missing one nail, never grew after hatching. One of my goffins developed normally, but one nail fell out as a juvenile and never regrew. No infection or trauma... strange!

Completely agree with previous posts, blood samples can be obtained by clipping a nail far enough to cause blood flow. Quickly heals and regrows as normal.

Re: African Grey died less 2-3 from when we received him

Hi, just an update... PA attorney general sent us letter stating "there is no resolution of our complaint" ... Ana will not help I guess. I guess she is not taking responsibility how deceive she was sending different bird, with PDD.

Anyway on the letter it said the complaint is on record and we hope other Victims will contact them as well and make sure will have there complaints also on record. Eventually she will get want she deserves. Karma will catch with her some day.

Same as BBB - BBB could not help have a resolution but the complaint will be in the record of 3 years.
