I think the answers should try to be positive - like calm down and take her to the vet hopefully it will mend with the right meds. Don't get person so upset thinking about amputation etc. I went through a terrifying experience last week with my Quaker and someone said so many negative things I was terrified didn't sleep and cried at vets etc. hopefully my baby will heal okay and he doesn't need amputation. Please think positive thoughts and say positive things to help the owners calm down etc.

I`ve been raising/breeding/handfeeding/selling parrots for over 20 years (parakeets/budgies, cockatiels, 6 subspecies of conures, parrotlets, amazons, lovebirds, etc.). I've been published in "Budgies" and "Cockatiels" offered by Bow Tie Productions, and have written avian articles for publication in England. I can provide advice in raising healthy birds, handfeeding/weaning babies, some health problems, nail/beak/wing clipping, general husbandry, etc. I also have experience with racing/showing homing pigeons. I cannot diagnose specific illness over this website. If you suspect your bird is ill or if you have an emergency, contact a certified avian veterinarian or emergency pet clinic ASAP.


Over 20 years breeding/raising/handfeeding/selling 15 different species of parrots.
