Honestly, as someone who has had a large parrot, the fact that nobody has mentioned having a finger amputated in this process really indicates that everyone who handled the birds knew what they were doing.

I LOVE my Morgan the African Grey, but I am also extremely respectful of her beak strength. I have experienced regrowing the fingertip nerves to know the possibilities.

Yipes, you got me beat. Hope your lip has healed up

It has, but the shirt I was wearing that day has a permanent bloodstain

A permanent monument to your lip injury.

But now the bird has a taste for human blood, beware!!!

(For the humor impaired, this a joke, I know all parrots already have thirst for human blood!)
