Re: itchy green cheek?

Does he have pin feathers near his eye? Those are very itchy and you can help him out by preening him as he can't reach them himself. My conure liked to scratch his head quite a bit - he'd use his tail feathers to do it, feathers that he had moulted, his claw, toys, and of course, us so they are birds that like a good head scratch. I would just watch but it doesn't sound like anything is up at this point.
