I had two 5 year old Diamonds and one of them passed back in October. I was so worried about the remaining little guy, but he has made it through the grief period and is loving life. These past couple weeks I noticed something was wrong. He was sitting on the floor in the back corner of his cage and not doing much but sitting and eating. I found a site that told me to put a heat lamp on him. He sits in front of that almost all the time. Upon further inspection I noticed a problem with the formation of his beak. The bottom part of his beak was beginning to curl. I immediately thought that was because he needed a trim to the top. So I did. I trimmed a little each day to the point where I think it shouldn't be trimmed any more. He is clearly struggling with eating because he picks at seeds for hours (even before the trim). He still sits in front of his heat lamp and is still the happiest little guy on this earth. He is pooping, so he must be eating something. As I though he was getting better, I noticed today his beak has turned into a scissor beak. Can I trim the bottom part of his beak? I wasn't sure if I should even touch that. It LOOKS to me like the reason it is going into scissor beak is because the bottom is growing super fast. I just need help. I am not taking him to a vet because of my past experience with the local avian vet. Plus I really don't want to stress him out on top of all this. Thanks!
