Message:I probably don't post as often as I want to about my 2 conures oscar and felix. I had to come on and post this morning about an incident that happened that scared the life out of me and my birds. I was awaken by a danger or help scream from felix about 11am this morning I ran to his cage and opened the door cause he was flying around the top of his cage when he did not come out right away I got him a peanut (his treat of choice) and when he still did not come out I took a much closer look. The pear clasp, or quick link yeah that steel piece that connects the toy to the cage had imbedded itself under felix's beak and was pinning him to the top and when his feet could not hold on he flew to stay up I of course panicked and got my fiance whose father and him had to cut the link with side cutters to release his beak. The well known specifically parrot store I bought my links from insisted that they could not be unscrewed by the bird but there may be a default in them after a few weeks cause in one day he was able to do this harm I took the links out of his cage and now tie the rope to the top. Under his beak is swollen and a little cut but he should be just fine. I just thought I would send a warning that these can fit right under the beak where it connects to the body and if I had not been home, Well I won't even think of that. Everyone is ok but was quite frazzled this morning he is eating fine and shows no sign of discomfort I think I have been more scared than him. But please all nanday owners please be aware of this potential lethal danger Thanks
