How much do you guys pay for nail trim? Specifically at your vet's.
My pet store friend usually does it for 5.00 bucks, but she's just getting back from vaca and I thought she'd be swamped with work, so I called the vet that is around the block who is great with dog/ cats but knows diddly about bird. I figured a nail trim was easy enough, nothing to screw up. I made the appointment and asked "Oh by the way, how much is a nail trim?" WELL!!  24.50!!!  Shocking!  Per bird! I'll be calling my friend, see if she can squeeze us in.

And you know, the other day, I tried with my little squirmy butts..but the second I had that tender pink little toe in my big monstrous hand.. I caved. Everytime she went "EEEP" I'd pee a little.   rolleyes.gif
NO really, I'm afraid of hurting them. for 5.00 I can let an expert handle them. but 24.50???? crazy, wacko stuff right there!

Yep, it's about $30 here from a vet. Plus they charge the visit fee... And it ends up being like $50 after everything.  :P  There's a groomer near me who charges $15. And then our bird club does grooming during the meetings for like $7.00.
And just yesterday I had a lady come over with her sun conure so I could do wing and nail trimming.  ;D I'm now her conure's permanent groomer, apparently! I guess she was pleased with how it turned out.  ;) She brought her two kids along (they were probably 12 years old), and they got to learn how to towel the sun while I trimmed. All three of them learned so much about birds yesterday! And I had fun teaching them.  :) Sorry, had to share! It was exciting.

Wow! Well, I just took the fiddies to my pet store friend. I call her the fids “Auntee Dee”. 
Pipz throws her kisses…until he realized what she was about to do.. then he turned into a little girl in a frilly pink dress!! “WAHHHH!! WAHHHH!!” Screamed and cried like he was being tortured.  Cat on the other hand, took it like a stoic Irish woman. Not a peep out of her.
she charged us her usual 5.00 It's good to have friends in high places.  ;D

I have never sent my birds for nails trimming. I bought a nail file and do it on my own.
There is no need to spend this kind of money.

My vet is pretty pricey too, I want to say around $22 for a nail trim. I know that an avian exam is $64, and that includes wing, nails, and beak if needed.
