    Nail cutting?

    Hey! I’ve noticed my quakers nails need trimming and was wondering the best way to go about it? Should I take him to a vet/pet store to get them trimmed, or would one of those pedi-perches with the smooth top (so it doesn’t hurt his feet) work? I’ve never had to get nails cut before because...

    Trouble Trimming Eddie's Nails

    Trying to trim my Quaker parrot, Eddie's nails has been an absolute nightmare. I'm fine taking him to a professional, but I'd rather do it at home since its much cheaper. I bought some quickstop and nail clippers, hoping to try it for myself. I'd already trimmed a few bird's nails at the bird...
