    I have an aracuana who's beak was injured when she was younger. I've been watching her as she grows, and IT is growing crooked.. She seems to fend for herself just fine but it looks so "goofy". If I trim her beak, how far can I go? How deep, (don't want to hurt her or make her bleed)?? Any suggestions??

    If its not too badly trimmed I would try to just file it with a nail file.. I have heard of folks doing this .. they would file for about 15 minutes a day until it was a more normal shape...
