Yes, when the beak gets too long, I'll see chips come off, a few times chunks like you're seeing.
I just make sure there's lots of enjoyed wood for them to chew to wear the jagged edges back down.
If she'll tolerate a filing, you could use a fingernail file to smooth it out.
I blame myself for that. Our CAV vet is about 3 hours from us, a friend told me about an exotic vet an hour and a half from us so I took her there because he said he does nails and beaks. Curbside only, done in 10 minutes, freezing out so I didn't inspect her beak or nails. We wouldn't change vets anyway but thought it'd be nice to have a shorter drive for her nails and beak.. out 165 dollars and bad beak job. Lesson learned.
Three hours is a very long trip with birds Carol... I don't think there are many members that wouldn't try to have the simple done closer.
It's not hurting her. Older Blue & Golds really seem to have a lengthy beak and it's really just your personal appearance preference to file it. As long as it's not impairing her ability to eat or preen there is nothing wrong with it. Kailua gets a long top beak and when she does it often breaks in a painful way so I file it.
I know so many members opt to not do nails themselves but since you are so far.... have you considered it?
Yes I've thought about it. Koko let's me mess her toes, and opens her beak for me. Last night I got a nail file out and sat by her messing with my nails but not looking at her. She came over and after awhile wanted it. I had her pull it out of my hand so it would be her choice to take it and not me forcing it on her. I'm going to keep doing that with her. I just feel I messed her beak up and stressed her to make it easier for me, not thinking about her.
