Birdie Tip: Never use over the counter medications to treat your bird. These medications do not target bird related illnesses and are very ineffective when administered in the water. If you suspect your bird is sick, then contact your avian veterinarian immediately.
Bird Brain Information: The bill or beak is anatomically known as the rostrum. It includes the bones of the upper and lower jaws and their horny sheaths. The upper horny sheath is called the rhinotheca; the lower horny sheath is called the gnathotheca.
