    My bird picked a small piece of my nail polish off of my finger lastnight, and I think he ate it. Do I need to take him to a vet or will he be ok? He's my daughter's bird and I would hate for anything to happen to him, he's a Quaker and about 9mo old. Please help!

    It's not the best thing for him to chew on, but he should be fine. Liquid nail polish has some potentially toxic ingredients, but they mostly evaporate when it dries.

    If it were to be a smaller bird like a budgie that possibly ate the nail polish, I'd recommend going to a vet because smaller birds tend to be more sensitive. However, since your bird is a Quaker and he only ate a small amount, he should be fine. Just be aware when you're wearing nail polish next time.
