Post: Beak trimming question

    Have a question for you. As I have experience with wing
    clippings and nail trimmings, my question is this. I have
    a macaw that has, what I would consider, a longer than
    usual beak with about a 3/4 inch extending down from his
    beak. It appears his beak has not been trimmed in quite
    sometime.
    I am comfortable enough to trim it myself using the
    appropriate files but would like to know if there is a
    specific amount that should be taken off per each
    trimming. I am aware of the "quick line" in the beak. Any
    info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
