    Urgent Nail cut too short

    My spouse was cutting our cockatiel Lio’s nails, and cut one too short when he wriggled in his towel burrito. It was bleeding a lot, we put cornstarch on it and it stopped for awhile.

    Indian Ringneck Nail Cut

    We recently brought our Indian Ringneck home, and I don't think his nails have ever been clipped. They dug into our skin and cut it up so after lots of research we decided to trim them ourselves since just a consultation at the vet is over $100 I know it will happen to every owner at least...

    On the cage that Taco came with when I got him, there was a huge hole cut out of one side for the nest box (which I immediately got rid of). I kept it "hidden" from Taco by clamping a blanket around it, which has been working fine until today. I just got home, and Taco was sitting on top of his...

    So this knuckle-head we all call Chirp has hurt himself yet again! I'm not sure why or how, but he dropped his longest tail feather. I checked and sure enough, he was bleeding! I pulled out my first aid kit and clean the area with a wet cotton ball. Then INSTEAD of styptic powder (I've...
