    Pink spot on birds face?

    Hello! Today I noticed that my African Grey has a small pink spot on his face. He’s been scratching his face and his nail clipping appointment has been pushed back. His nails are quite long (and sharp). I feel so badly :( I’m going to see if there’s somewhere else reputable I can get it done...

    Preening and Pin feathers help!

    Recently adopted a rescue African Grey. It’s been a lot of work but I’ve finally gotten him to trust me enough to cuddle and give scratches.
