Re: baby macaw emergency beak issue

My bird has it- she is an adult though- It is much better if you can get it fixed though, because it can end up costing more money down the road to keep it from becoming a major issue..Noodles had to have really frequent beak trimming on one side because of it.

Re: baby macaw emergency beak issue

so we went to the vet, he took a look at her he wanted to do some blood tests and gender DNA feather test but I didn’t allow him, I think she is still young for that. For the extra piece from the beak he said probably cuz she got deformity she keeps grinding in a strange way that’s why it happened. He said he won’t do any type of beak trimming. she is still young and nothing can be done to scissor beak deformity at all whatever retainer or procedure that is taken now it will hurt her and create a trauma. And asked me to give her a sunbath so she gets more vitamin D and to wait. For the panting problem, he said she is growing new feather and it’s really hot in Saudi and she can’t sweat so she is adopting, no problem but keep an eye on the climate around her.

Re: baby macaw emergency beak issue

i have 2 important questions.

1. why my parrot doesn't come to eat like all other parrots when they see a syringe? and i know for a fact she is very hungry!



2. why she likes to stand near walls a lot.
