What causes a parrot to have a constricted toe?
Constricted toe, generally caused by low humidity in the brooder or nest box, is a condition that develops in very young parrot babies.

What should I do if my parrot broke a feather?
The best remedy is to pull the feather. The feather shaft should be held securely with a pliers about 1-2 inches from the wing, and pulled straight out so the feather follicle is not damaged or torn. Care should be taken that the shaft is not broke close to the wing so that it cannot be removed.
What happens if you remove an avian toenail?
A removal attempt by an amateur may cause excessive bleeding and infection. If the constricting skin is visible, it maybe softened with a quality skin cream and carefully removed. Removal of the constriction will save the toe. If you are not sure of what you are doing, please have a avian vet take care of the problem.
