I've just noticed a pijie with a beak that has the lower part at about 45 degrees of the top part and it is very hard for her to eat. I gave her some seeds and I saw her only being able to eat one after several trials. . It seems that it would be easier for her to eat break crumbs ...I am trying to catch her but it has not been easy. Any suggestions?

Thanks

They can pick up seed better if it is deep and thick...if you are pavement feeding can you put dome in a crack or a depression for her?

Hi Eleonora,

I guess the question to be asked is, is this something recent, or has this bird been this way a while and knows the ropes of coping with the beak the way it is. If you think that she is not doing well and needs help, here are some links below that may be of use in trying to catch this bird.

I posted these links a few times before and I will give the disclaimer that I mentioned before, I am not sure I am crazy about them sort of hassling the birds, but it seems they mean no real harm and in the end these clips may help someone learn how to catch a hurt bird.

Here are the links to the videos, the key is to get the bird you are after sort of locked in the middle of a feeding frenzy and make a quick grab.

Good luck,
