Well, it did at the time, but it’s just what you deal with when you’re trying to cope with a stressed bird. It all worked out in the end and she is a fabulous member of the house!
I have no scars whatsoever and Nyla is a wonderful little girl. It was worth it. And that was well over a year ago.

Hehe when I first got Scout, given that she was a baby and I didn’t have the safety sanded perch set up yet, her nails did to my wrists and arms like Nyla did to your hand. I got my first manicure ever (at age 25) and the beautician looked kind of horrified at the scrapes.
I got Scout a safety sanded perch shortly thereafter, and it was the best $16 I ever spent. 🙂
