I rescued 9 Volt in July and his beak was so long that he looked like Gonzo. I read up on trimming and have been working on him ever since. He's certainly looking better, but that darn bottom beak is driving me crazy. The quick is pulling back sooooo slowly. I know from studying the photos that it's supposed to tuck up into the top one, but ARGH. Over the first couple months, I got him to where it'd at least close (small gap still, but WAY improved), so he has much less difficulty eating. Should it be taking this long for that quick to recede? I feel for the little fella, he still can't manage anything other than bite-sized bits. Is there perhaps another issue or am I "over-mama-ing?"
