Being ever so important to upkeep the health and strength of a parakeet’s beak, the shocking fact about cuttle bone is that in reality it’s not bone at all. It’s rather the inside shell of a cuttlefish.
By rubbing their beak against the cuttle bone, the outer layers of their beak gets shaved away restricting it from overgrowing. The consequence of an overgrown beak is that it becomes increasingly difficult for your parakeet to eat which could eventually result in malnutrition.
In addition, Pisces Cuttle Bone is also a source of calcium which aids in the maintenance of bones, beaks and nails!?
