    Thank you so much. I am acctually calling right now. For anyone
    else who is intrested the cost for the flight feathers is $11.00
    and the cost for the nails is $16.00. The avian vet will
    require you to have a physical workup which is around $38.00

    Might be different in other area's but it will give you a ruff

    Thank you again for your help.
