    Hello!

    My parrot has taken a piece of soft plastic off of my laptop. I suspect he might have swallowed it. Is the size of this something I should be concerned about? IMG_6976.JPG IMG_6978.JPG

    This is the wrong section, this the section for people having issues with the forum. An admin will probably move this thread to the emergency section.
    what makes you think your bird swallowed It? Birds are good about not swallowing most things.

    Oh my bad, I just joined today. I wasn't able to see the "post new thread anywhere".

    But in regards to the bird, he's been chewing on everything. and unfortunately, I have not been able to spot the piece anywhere else.

    I have 4 adult Quakers and they are VERY good at chewing stuff OFF and chewing stuff UP but never leaving any trace or remains. They are stinkers about that. I couldn't see clearly in your pix what he chewed off but repost in the Emergency section which will get more attention. And welcome, though I'm sorry about the circumstances.

    There’s a good chance he didn’t swallow it and you may never find the piece. I would watch to make sure he is acting normally, eating, drinking, pooping, etc. If not then a vet visit would be warranted. If it were metal, it would be more urgent.
    The plastic would likely pass through if he did ingest it.

    Dobby found a foam earplug from work and ate it. I was scared to death he swallowed the missing end but he acted fine and I later found the end on the kitchen floor. He likes to chomp soft things up then spit out the leftovers. It is what they do and it's hard to keep ahead of him and safety up all of it.
    Like everyone says he probably knawed on it and spit it out somewhere just keep an eye on him.
