Re: Need advice on SassyByrd always “mouthing” my fingers/hands.

Seems like a normal parrot in my experience. My Nike is much the samw way. She uses her beak as a third hand and doesn't go anywhere on my without first using her beak. She is often inspecting me with her tongue and picking at my freckles. She's great at not using too much pressure but with a needle sharp beak even a littl pressure can pinch. What I've started doing is having the tip of her beak touched with a Dremel whenever I have her nails done. Makes a world of difference. Nike never bites my fingers with enough force to hurt but can pinch me by accident.
Bill and Nike,
