His beak is to long?

I have an Eclectus who's upper beak is really long is there a way of trimming his beak as I don't want him to have issues because its too long and may cause him harm ?

Definitely take it to the vet. I don't know if I'd trust any groomer to trim a Parrot's beak..

How long is it? Are you able to post a pic.
It is unusual for Eclectus to get overgrown beaks as they usually big gnawers. If its only a tiny bit overgrown you may be able to just give him some extra toys to play with that are designed to keep their beak trimmed. Then just monitor it and see how it progresses.

Pictures? If it is too long, I'd suggest taking your bird to a vet for sure.

Take it to a vet. Are you sure it's overgrown? Ekkies typically have large beaks
