Cockatoo, Beak or tongue small amount of bleeding.
by John Fahlsing
ANYBODY? HELP!!! The cockatoo, Princess, about twenty minutes ago started bleeding from her beak area or possibly the tongue? Its not a steady bleed but, I sprayed gently with water to see where and its possible she was cleaning or picking at her beak area with them eagle claws? Anyway, not bleeding steady, mostly build up in a a few seconds or more, and she shakes it off and on me or her sheet, (Nitetime cover) Seems to be in good spirits and yes I'm the one freaking out. Can't take her to vet, and all i have is clean water.
Just gave her a cool damp clean white sock and she will chew it a bit, and let me clean her up and she went right to her perch. I think its slowed to almost a stop.
Just never saw this before and I know its a freak thing. So hope is up and fear is down.
