I am after some advice on the best way to deal with long nails on a parrot. He is 18 months old and his nails are so sharp its becoming painful having him on me. He is very tame but not tame enough to be held and me trim them. I tried but he freaked out and I don't want to risk the trust I have built up with him. he was not hand reared and has already been through 2 previous owners. When he first came to me he wouldn't go near any humans. It seems there are no avian vets or bird groomers near me as well!
