|Our oldest Bourke Parakeet, Rhett.|
|Rhett has become used to this procedure. I think he appreciates it.|
|He doesn't struggle, making it easy to snip the extra length.|
However, I still hold his head steady between two fingers.
|If you snip too much and the beak begins to bleed,|
quickly add corn starch to the wound to stop the bleeding.
This also works for the nails of the feet if you snip too close.
