Re: baby macaw emergency beak issue

Definitely get him to a vet and soft food.
Do you know what happened? Is it an injury or deformity?
Can he close his mouth properly?

Background on what appears to be a scissors-beak deformity from earlier thread: 8 weeks Blue and gold baby

I understand you don't have access to an avian vet. Are you located near a zoo, perhaps they might give assistance? This is a specialized situation and ordinary vets will be useless or worse.

Does your bird appear to be in pain, or are you observing deep frustration from difficulty eating? What sort of foods are you able to provide?

That's why I was asking about his ability to close his beak properly. IF it is scissor beak and they catch it early, they can correct it. That having been said, severe scissor beak can interfere with breathing and eating. My bird came to me with scissor-beak but there are varying degrees.

What symptoms are you seeing that suggest pain and how long has this been an issue? I absolutely suggest looking for an avian certified vet (or zoo vet).
