Post: Beak injury

    Today, my female Fischer lovebird landed on my very cage-
    aggressive African Grey's cage. The grey immediately
    latched onto the lovebird's lower mandible and snipped off
    a good portion of it. There was no bleeding, but now she
    is unable to close her beak enough to break open any
    seeds. She does eat pellets, but she usually pulverized
    them first. If I take her into my vet, will they be able
    to do anything? She is otherwise acting her normal self.
    I did pulverize some pellets for her. Do you think she
    will be able to eat? Should I wet down the crushed pellets
    for her to try to eat? Any advice would be appreciated!
