Puddings & Toyboys

A blog about my beautiful budgies.

Short toenails, long beak?

Cagney appears to be keeping his toenails under control & they are a reasonable length at the moment.  However, the other day I got a shock when I saw the length of his beak!  I have never seen it so long!  It has always been quite long & pointy, particularly compared to Bezukhov’s, but now it has got far too long.

They always have an iodine block in the Manor.  There has always been an iodine block in the spare cage.  In fact, the toyboys have usually gone into the spare cage specifically to chew its iodine block (pre Little Grey Man taking the spare cage over, of course).

To encourage Cagney to sort his beak out I have started putting an iodine block on the landing platform in the hope he will have a nibble on his way in & out.

Beak curling round to his chinny chin chin!

    Oh dear. I have to trim Charlies about every 3-4 weeks. But he has liver problems. Hope Cagney doesn’t.

    I expect it’s actually a fashion statement.

    wow… that’s not good, hope thats removed now, I have seen worse, but it’s not good that either. Mine doesn’t have problems on that part and for that I’m glad! 🙂
