I decided to call this very nice lady that goes to your house and grooms your birdies because Winnie hasn’t been groomed for a while and I only used to do nails but now I did beak too because his was way too sharp. Of course I didn’t touch my baby’s wings because I love seeing him fly :heart: But he was screaming the whole time even though it didn’t hurt he’s just very dramatic and loud :o: and she was great and a professional and suuuuper nice to Winnie just he’s not used to it :( Right after she left he started to sleep on me and he even hid under my hand and I know he’s not hurt he’s just super stressed but I feel so bad for him :arghh:

beaks actually do have nerve endings and blood vessels.
It can be very painful to have them trimmed, only an avian vet should do it.
It is a much better idea to get them to do a lot of chewing on wood.

Winnie is beautiful. Very cool that she sought comfort from you.

The lady has around 10 parrots and she worked with parrots for many years. I know of birds that used to bleed when trimming their beaks but she was extremely careful and only trimmed the tiny sharp part. But I can understand what you mean by it better to have them chew on wood and I’m going to take that advice and not do beak trimming anymore. :)
