Tusli= Black-Capped Conure x1
Tulsi has her band removed on the 30th but they also trimmed her nails. She’s been struggling with gripping, which may be affecting her sleeping well at night? And she occasionally keeps her right leg tucked up which wasn’t happening before. It’s not the leg her band was on. Her foot isn’t swollen and I don’t see any sores. Maybe they cut to the quick? Any idea how long it takes nails to grow out or her to sharpen them? The vet said a week 🤔 I’m sad she seems to be struggling a little.

Ona: Dilute Green Cheek Conure
Same exact way Ona was acting after I had her nails trimmed. It took her a little bit to get over it - maybe a week or even two. She was fine but just not used to it and uncomfortable :( She did the foot tuck and everything too.

I've tried filing her nails instead of having them trimmed since then. Now they are getting a bit sharp again :/ I did get her one nail filing perch which has helped some.

I hope Tulsi gets used to her new nails soon!
