    Sorry nobody has posted and I have been watching because I'm
    not really sure of what to say unless maybe he thinks your
    toes are his to have and hold! HA
    My green cheeks arent like that but I do have a Congo that I
    adopted in May that goes after MENS toes but not mine. Is
    there a way you can clip its wings (just a little) to maybe
    slow it down till it gets over this time if it is just its
    hormones? Thats a good age for them to kick in and some
    birds do weird stuff during that time too. I hope someone
    else helps so maybe we can both learn something new.
