A bird’s beak is not only amazingly versatile, but it is also vital for its existence.
In addition to eating, a bird uses its beak for playing, climbing and holding things.
To make sure your bird maintains a healthy beak, you need to give it proper care and grooming.
Here are a few things which can help care for your bird’s beak:
- Provide good nutrition: Nutrition for a bird’s beak varies according to the type and size. Know what type of beak your bird has and accordingly provide quality nutrition to maintain it.
- Supply chewing toys: The more you give your bird to chew, the less the chance of your pet bird getting bored, and consequently the greater its chance of having a well-trimmed beak. Even climbing toys such as chains, ladders and ropes will help your bird’s beak to stay healthy.
- Identify unhealthy shaped beak: Unhealthy shaped beaks take three main forms, namely, overgrown beak, scissors beak and parrot beak. These unhealthy beak shapes form for various reasons. So, if you notice the appearance of these shapes, immediately consult your pet health provider and take necessary steps to ensure the beak grows healthily.
