I know it is normal for a parrot to want to preen his human's hair but Mr P seems to do this excessively. As soon as I put him on my shoulder, he starts chewing on my hair or picking imaginary..things?...off my cheeks and ear.
So far he has been fairly gentle and has not bitten me but sometimes he gets a little over zealous.
I don't mind this behaviour once in awhile but it seems as though EVERY time he is on my shoulder he does this.
Is this normal?
It seems a bit excessive?
I am wondering if he is lacking in some mineral or something that he is trying to get from my skin?
