  2. Thanx for your help. Matilda is settling in ok now. The feathers she chewed off arenโ€™t bothering her so just gunna leave her be. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿฆœ๐Ÿ‘
  3. I recently had my African Grey at the Vets cause she chewed off 2 wing feathers. She was sedated and had to have the shafts removed as she seemed to be in pain. I came home with pain relief and all was good. Recently weโ€™ve had an excavator digging behind our house for a new one to be built. My girl Matilda has been really stressed so weโ€™ve been spending more time with her at the front of our house away from the scary noises. Yesterday she chewed off another 2 large wing feathers but this time the remaining feather Shafts arenโ€™t bothering her. Just want to know if sheโ€™s as happy as she normally
  4. Thanx Greytness, Iโ€™ll look around for a groomer if I need to. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  5. Hereโ€™s a couple of pix of concrete nail trimming perch.
  6. Hi Timbersmom, I just got back on the site after my password had been refused. I created another one so all good. The concrete nail trimming perch is at the top of the cage. Iโ€™m hoping she starts moving around on it more like she used to. Vets want $300 for a nail trim. ๐Ÿคฃ
  7. Hi all, can anyone advise me what perches are best or what I should use to keep my Greys nails trimmed. My girl Matilda was using a multi shaped concrete perch which is soft on top for the pads of her feet and rough on the bottom for filing down her needle sharp nails. She is now not using that perch so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. cheers, Steve ๐Ÿฆœ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    Vet question

    I went into the Vets with Matilda and just like you said I discussed the issues with the Vet. The Vet then took her away to treat her and when she came back she was all over me and very clingy. Sheโ€™s doing really well now. Iโ€™m so happy I could help her. ๐Ÿฆœ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™
  15. Thanx for your kind words. Matilda is doing great now, canโ€™t keep her still. ๐Ÿฆœ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  16. Thanx for your good wishes Jenn, Iโ€™m hopeful my Hirl will never have anything like this happen again. Sheโ€™s super happy today but still a bit tender. All the best. ๐Ÿฆœ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  17. She slept really well once she got home. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿฆœ๐Ÿ™
  18. Thanx for your good wishes. Certainly is great to have her home where she belongs. Hereโ€™s a few pix of what was done at the Vets.
  19. Iโ€™m hearing ya, sheโ€™s so happy now. ๐Ÿฆœ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™
  20. Hereโ€™s a few pix of what was surgically removed from Matilda.
  21. Thanx for the good wishes, it was a very stressful time at the Vets but just having my Girl here right now and do happy makes it all worthwhile. These birds are truly beautiful creatures. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘Œ
  22. Forget to mention, Matilda is home with pain medication for 7 days. All is well. ๐Ÿฆœ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  23. I explained everything that was going on with Matilda to the Vet. The Vet believed it probably started with a damaged feather she tried to remove but unsuccessful. She then decided to try and remove the same one on the other side which had nothing wrong with it was just Matilda wanting her wings to be the same both sides. The Vet said that me having over 2 weeks with her then going back to work would have really stressed her and thrown her out of a routine she became very comfortable with. Apart from that the Vet did a poop sample and all clear. The Vet also said sheโ€™s in perfect condition an
  24. Matilda had to have surgery to remove both of her remaking feather shafts which were full of blood and a lot of swelling around the base of each one. The vets is gunna give me pain relief for her for the next few days. So glad the Vet can help her. Hate seen her suffer. Iโ€™m sure she will be back to normal soon. ๐Ÿฆœ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘
  25. Canโ€™t thank you enough for all your help LNCAG. Will let you know the Vet results once I know. ๐Ÿฆœ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘
