African grey lost nail

by Marc Jones

My African grey is missing a nail. I'm not sure how this had happened. She seems ok an is acting as she normally does. She let's me touch it. There is a little dry blood on it but it isn't bleeding. Is there anything you can advise?

Do nothing unless it starts bleeding. If so, apply direct pressure for 1-2 minutes. I recommend that he be seen by an avian veterinarian to be sure I is not infected.
