Firstly I'd like to thank you all, because of this site I have somewhere to voice my acute paranoia!
So a few months ago I saw this poor budgie at an old folks home with an extremely long beak. Like incredibly long. (I reported it to the humane society in my city) anyways after that I was a bit concerned about Smol's beak, but after some research it seemed normal length.
Welp, that concern has reared its ugly head again.
Here are some pics of his beak:
Sorry if the last ones a bit blurry, he gets excited when my phone is out and just wants to land on it haha
Some information on Smol's habits:
His cuttle bone isn't used much, if ever. I've had the same one for about a year and it has only gone down maybe a quarter in size.
He has a bird kabob in his cage, again only really chewed one block and lost interest.
He has a mineral block that he chews on more than the cuttle bone, maybe every couple of days.
He also has some chewing wood blocks I got from mysafebirdstore, which he only seems to touch when I present them to him (and is disappointed because it isn't food)
So anyways, what do you guys think? Is his beak too long? I would prefer only getting it done if necessary, it seems like a very terrifying ordeal for the little things.
Otherwise, are there any other ways or pointers for helping him actually use
the things that keep his beak trim?
