Re: My lovebird keeps biting her feet?

Aloe Vera is safe and great for helping with dry skin. The problem with this is that it may not just be dry skin - there's a possibility that she's chewing at her feet because of some underlaying medical condition that may be causing the pain in her feet. Often times birds will relentlessly chew at a spot because they are experiencing pain there.

You can definitely try using the aloe vera to see if it helps, but if it doesn't I am afraid you do need to see an avian vet to make sure she doesn't have any type of metal poisoning or potential infection that's causing the behaviour.
