parakeet beak starts growing
(Port Richey, FL)
This is my second parakeet, that at age 7 his beak started growing longer. Bird has been in the same cage and place since he was 1 and everything was fine.
now it grows to the point it is like a curved needle. I was afraid he would stab himself in the chest..and of course he couldnt eat.
We took him and had it trimmed less than 2 weeks ago. He didnt eat for almost 10 days.
Now has started eating again, but we have noticed his beak is starting to get long again.
I'm afraid that if i take him to have it trimmed again, and he stops eating that it will not be good.
What can I do? He used to use the sandpaper perch (loved it) and the cuttle bone, but rarely uses eithier now to trim beak.
