How to cut their nails

Postby loljelloclowdz » Fri Jan 01, 2021 8:21 pm

This is how I cut Mari’s nails so she doesn’t freak out and get hurt.
1. Put her to bed by covering her with her beardie sized tortilla blankie (we both have matching blankets!)
2. Wait an hour
3. Trim her nails while she’s in a deep sleep (works every time. I think she’s freaked out by the idea of the clippers and so when she can’t see what I’m doing she’s not freaked out.)

Now if anyone knows how to get a very crazy cockatiel to let me clip her nails, please tell me. Kiwi basically has talons 😂


Edit: Mari wakes up but she doesn’t flinch when she’s sleepy and confused.

You are a sneaky nail trimmer, stealth mode has paid off for doing your dragon's nails but now you have to figure how to do the same for Kiwi ! :) Any help on Youtube ?

I think my mom and I will have to wrap her in a cloth and quickly trim her nails. She will bite the heck out of me, but her nails are like velociraptor claws.
