Chippy finished up her molt, so I took her for her first nail trimming this week. She did surprisingly well! Her nails were horribly long, so the quicks were as well. She has to go back in about 3 months to see if we can get them down to a normal length. She did not hardly make a sound at the vet's office, but as soon as we got in the car she chewed me out!
We discussed wing trimming, since she is not hand tame at this time. Since she doesn't get stressed out, & seems like she wants to come out & visit, we decided to get them trimmed. We will go next week for that.
Oh absolutely! The vet actually told me the whole process, how he cuts them & why. That's when I decided it would be ok.
I would be very interested in hearing what he said he is going to do and why. An update afterwards would be great too, about how your budgie reacted and in the results. Plus some before and after pics!
So not asking for much then
But suspect others would also be keen to know more about this subject too.
