No my bird nails are short but when he was flying she got hit on the door as he tried to fly to my mother
Nails are not a normal issue with overgrowth as cockatiels "manicure" their own nails naturally. That is the time when they touch your clothing, or anything cloth, and get a little "stuck" They get themselves out of this situation soon enough.
