Not that easy to use

posted 5 years ago

I bought this back when we had tons of birds, but I found that I prefer to use a human nail clipper to trim sharp toenails of the birds. For me, it is just easier to manipulate the clippers than the scissors. Also, I feel that the nail clippers are less likely to cause damage elsewhere, like you might cut off something else if the bird struggles.

I think making it a two person job is a lot easier. One person can hold the bird, while the other clips. It also depends on the bird. Several of my birds will allow me to clip their claws while balancing on my other hand on one foot. The other birds are quite wild and will struggle and bite me a lot.

Overall, I think it is an okay tool to use, but you can save money by using your own nail clippers. I also file it down a little to get rid of the sharp edges. Don't forget to clean and disinfect the clippers if you are using it for yourself too. I have several so the bird one is dedicated solely for their use.

Pros: A means to clip the claws of birds

Cons: A regular human nail clipper is just as effective

I highly recommend this product

posted 6 years ago

This little scissor has a notch rounded tip where you clip the nails and acts as a safety measure in it's use for clipping the wings.

I have used it exclusively for over 20 years for small birds. They are very durable and can be resharpened with a sharpening stone.

Medium to large birds need a stronger nail clipper and I use Miller Forge's Cat Claw Scissor for them. I use good tempered steel scissor with rounded tips to do the medium to large birds wings.

For the really large birds I use the dog nail clippers and tempered steel scissor with rounded tips.

Be sure to have a good blood stopping powder handy in case you hit the quick.

Pros: Durable and rounded safety tips.

Cons: None in my experience

Clips wings too

posted 5 years ago

this little pair of sissors lets you get close on the toes without quicking, and also clips wing feathers.

Pros: gets close to toes

Cons: can be hard to find
