Remember when I joked about this kid needing to be swathed in bubble wrap? :shifty:

Pro tip: When you're getting so excited over a new toy that you've already bonked yourself hard on your cage bars twice, maybe you should stop smashing it for a second and let your mom move it to a safer spot before you snap the tip of your beak off.

Ok that isn't as bad as I thought was going be. Taco, you goose, you're going need a little bit of a trim. It might be a little scary but it will not hurt. @Macawnutz what do you think Sarah?

Oh no! I am glad it is not as bad as I first imagined. Poor little treasure....... how long was it till you said you were moving into the vet clinic?

I really hope he is not in any pain from that and I certainly hope you can get a little break from injuries and illnesses in you and your kids.

Oh no. :(

He is bleeding pretty good. That is going to hurt for awhile and he will have trouble eating. You are going to want to get him a little pain medication for a few days. It's going to be a very sensitive area for about a week. Imagine nerve pain. He will forget it hurts until he grabs something and then will jump back in pain. :(

Older BG tend to get tippy on their top beak. Kailua used to do this often and now I make beak trimming part of her nail trimming day. Korbel and Maui are the other two that used to do this often. Korbel has grown up and Maui... well... when Maui does it we almost take it as a blessing. ;) We thank goodness he won't pinch us for a few days. Lol

Poor, poor Taco. That's going to hurt for a week or so. Like @Macawnutz said get the bleeding stopped and put him on pain meds for a few days. he'll also have to have very soft foods. I'm sure you know the drill - in fact, you are going to know every drill if your birds keep it up.

Mr Tuesday is very lucky! We went for a trip to the vet this morning, and he got some pain meds for his ouchie face, but he's okay. He's not even being a crybaby about it!

He's gonna be eating mash for a while.

How is Taco doing @hrafn? Is he all healed up and feeling fine again? Did he get lots of mango to eat while he was broken?

Taco, you are clumsier than I am, and that's saying something. At this rate, you might need to get him his own padded room, have him bubble-wrapped, and keep the crash helmet on.
