Talkin about trimming beaks do people have that done I would imagine it would be quite stressful for the parrot . And also the owner Charlie would scream the place down ha

No we've never need to have any of their breaks trimmed, I think if they have plenty of branches, cuttlefish etc to chew on it keeps them trim, although I think perhaps some folk have had to get this done, it is rare.

Our Tommy has to have his claws trimmed now & then as they seem to grow quite long. I try to do them when he climbs in his cage - carefully grab a leg & clip one or two despite his protests. Although last time he has to see our vet , it took her, my hubby and their other vet to hold him & do them!

Hi mike, I was just looking through preloved and saw you were selling Charlie? I didn't know he was up for sale? What parrot are you looking for?

Aw, why is Charlie up for sale?

Thought you were making progress with him? And African Greys's aren't particularly friendly Mike!

I'm not selling him now I just hadn't removed my ad I wouldn't have let him go anyway is loved I promise .. It just gets frustrating sometime when he tries bite that's why I first put him on there and a member of this site invited me here and now I understand him a lot better now.. And he now removed . I'm getting on with him now really good .

Can some one add Charlie's photo to pic of the month? Can't even get Lily's tablet to turn on now Sad had it from china, so getting it replaced is turning into a bit of a ball ache.
