Q. One of my bird's beak is getting really long and curved under. Never had this happen. Should I try to file it or what should I do?

Answered By

A. Purchase more things that file down the birds beak. While I am a certified dog trainer, I have owned many many birds in my life, and I know that any time my birds beak was getting a little bit too long, it just meant their old filer wasn't fun anymore, and I needed to purchase a new one. Get a few different ones.. the same old filer can get boring after a while. Birds need a LOT of mental stimulation (just like dogs), so adding brand new toys to their cage all of the time is very important..
