Leting others to tell you about the dosage, I will say that calcium will serve for a good diet from now on (must be given periodically, 3-5 days with 2-3 weeks pause afterward), it won't cure the beak displacement. The bird will remain like this and will need to be handfed to survive.


There is a procedure for corecting the beak in the book Avian Medicine, Principles and Practices, but probably is beyond what you can do. Here is a webpage about scissor-beak and the chapter from that book, with illustrations:

what is your method of hand feeding? was there any possible strain put on the birds beak?
if it was a deficiency, I would expect other parts of the bird to be affected as well.
feathers looking good? leg/ wing joints doing ok?

Andrei, the bird doesn't have a scissor beak.

maha vishnu, can you keep this all in one thread? It just gets confusing with 2 threads, as people are answering to both, and will be having to repeat things. Just keep adding to this thread now.

I had also mentioned in the other thread that it could have been caused by hand feeding.
Can you answer the question of how was the bird fed?
