My Budgies Beak Broke Off – Can I Fix It?

parrot with broken beak

Stevie Van Zandt requested your answer

I have a rescue budgie, the top of his beak was almost totally gone, just barely hanging.

 

We have NO vet in my area and nobody specializes in birds.

 

I removed what was hanging and she seems ok, I made a “mush” for her to eat. Will the beak grow back?

 

Your bird’s beak may or may not grow back.

Why Captive Birds Don’t Need To Learn How To Fly

File under “the universe is too complicated to be arbitrary” which begs the question “does a dyslexic agnostic believe in dog?”

 

From our Birdie Bruch reader Betsy L.

 

THANK YOU for today’s (9/11/16) birdy brunch!  It was perfectly timed….

 

Yesterday evening, a Quaker parrot landed on my friend’s head while he was out on his deck (near Lawrence and Kedzie – in Chicago).

Is this a proper budgie cage set up?

Is this a proper budgie cage set up?

First of all you do not indicate the bird’s lifestyle.

Will this be a solitary bird who spends a lot of time in the cage or will the bird be out of the cage a lot and basically used for sleeping?

A Better Bird Ep 13 – How Bird Proof Is Your Home? Video

In about 24 months our household has gone from 0 to 9 birds.

Six budgies (2 males/4 females), a female Senegal (surgically sexed) and a male African ringneck (males have the ring).

I fondly call the budgies my little hooligans who have their own cage as does Peaches our 9 year old female Senegal and Keto the newest member to our family, the 17-year-old male African ringneck.

Why Did My Hawkheaded Parrot Freak Out After A 4 Day Absence?

The following is a thread between Mary Anne M and Catherine

 

Editor’s note: We will do our best to provide cage bird keeping solutions.

 

The more information we have, the more precise our answers.

 

8/23/2018 – I have a Hawkheaded parrot named Rudy (above) that is the greatest companion!

 

He has been with me for the past 2 years & comes out with me daily.

 

My husband & I just took a long weekend vacation (4 days).

 

He (the bird) stayed at our house with pet sitters & remained in his cage.

 

Upon my return my hawkhead totally freaked out.

 

I let him venture out of his cage on his own & just relax before trying to handle him as usual ~ bit me down to the bone.

 

This is still the 1st day we are home.

 

Any suggestions?

 

I’m not a novice & have owned my gray & yellow nape for over 30 years. Thanks Mary Anne
