|Subject:||Re: Beak Trim?|
|Message:||Nandays have a naturaly longer beak than suns, jendays, and other similar size conures. You may not need to trim his beak at all. I can tell you if it needs trimming if I see him. Can you post a picture of your boy in the gallery?
The only time you'd really need to trim his beak is if it's rapidly overgrowing due to some underlying health problem, or if it's too long and brittle, preventing him from eating properly. Otherwise, with plenty of things to chew and shred, he'll keep his beak at the proper length all by himself.
