Cockatiel Beak Issue
(Atascadero, CA, USA)
You may remember the 15 yr. old cockatiel who had a beak trim recently, and the beak was trimmed too short. The poor thing couldn't adequately eat for quite a few days after that beak trim. This was a month ago to the day...
Well,believe it or not, that same bird has a beak that is quite long and probably should be trimmed again!
First, know that I am actively seeking a proper Avian for the upcoming trim. But I want to make sure the beak doesn't become so overgrown that we're trimming every 4 weeks~ the poor bird will get very stressed out by this!
She is not a young bird, (she's 15!)and has only needed the one prior beak trim.
Any ideas what's going on? I was thinking perhaps we have a very high calcium content in our tap water, so have given her bottled water for the last 2 days.
Comments & of course AVIAN Vet advice would be appreciated. Thank you very much!
