Proper bird parrot grooming is important for both your pet birds safety and to possibly prevent behavior problems and future health problems. Bird grooming involves providing a proper wing trim, possible beak trimming and trimming parrot claws.
Important information about parrots: feathers, the beak and parrot claws all contain a "quick" or a blood vessel. You must know how to avoid clipping a blood vessel in order to prevent a parrot emergency. Parrots only have a minimal amount of blood in their bodies as a biological measure to keep them light weight and flight ready. Any bleeding needs to be considered a parrot emergency and must be stopped immediately.
Bathing your bird keeps feathers pristine and skin in good condition.
Warning: Always make sure that you have been trained by your avian vet before bird parrot grooming. Please make sure that you have Styptic Powder available before starting bird grooming.
