    Quick Claw Question

    That was what i suspected, having never needed to use a vets for Claws, i was unsure, i may opt for the big Clip myself as the bird gets stressed being handled, i would rather do it once as a 1 off, than once a week for a month or 2

    Brown discolouring on his tail

    Tail feathers should never be clipped, they affect the birds balance !!
  7. i have clipped loads of parrot claws in the past but today was asked to have a look at a friends U2, one of the smaller claws has curled right round and is touching the foot, Now my Question is .... If i Clip the claw back it will bleed as i will need to take at least 3 - 4 mm off so it can be used properly and start to grow properly Will the bleeding be the only problem or should i advise he takes the bird to a vets, What would a vet do in this situation other than clip the claw and stem the bleeding ?? Cheers in advance !!

    one of my Umbrellas used to get really excited in the shower, usually swallowing large amounts of water and bringing it all back up along with his last meal, Was it raining when you noticed it ??
