Re: Is it normal

Hi welcome to the forums.
As stated above normal
But I would modify the restraint technique you used in the second picture. Holding the neck like that can be dangerous for the bird. Instead I suggest cupping the head in your hand and usi g your finger tips on the base of the jaw behind the beak.
How long have you had your bird?
I hope you stick aroundots if good info here.
