the upper beak is overlapping the bottom you will have to trim the
upper beak. You can tell where to cut it because the beak that has
grown over the end is normally a slightly different color. You can also
look inside the mouth and see where the fleshy part ends. Then you take
human toenail clippers and trim the tip of the beak off (one never
needs to clip anything but the tip of theupperbeak).
If it is cut too short, it will bleed a little bit, but, because I am
always carefull, I've never seen a bird where this is serious.
Sometimes I trim my birds' beaks too short on purpose because I think
it helps to deter egg eating. Mostly, one cuts the beak so that it just
looks right. The upper beak will still overlap the bottom just a little
This image shows how short to
trim the upper beak.
