How do I trim my conure's nails?

+1 vote

I have a sun conure that we let out of the cage. We love to play with him, but sometimes his nails dig into us and scratch us pretty badly. Is it OK to trim his nails? What's the best way to do it?

Place your thumb just back of his beak. Place the other hand just above his legs and extend each claw, one at a time, clipping the edge. Keep flour handy to staunch any bleeding and just pack it on.
