    Hey all!

    I've got a question straight from hubby. :D

    He was wondering why Paulie will wipe his beak on him when his beak isn't dirty. He had asked me but I didn't know the answer either. Is this just a bird habit or are they like rabbits who like to rub their chins to show ownership and affection?

    We are giant walking napkins. :laughing4: even if we cant see the dirty. It is there. They feel it like we do when we have super glue on our finger tips. Their beaks, tounge, and feet are sensitive.

    Buddy does this sometimes. It can be a habit from/of boredom IMO. of

    I also agree it's what @Dgh said.

    Now that Buddy's busy, all the time, It's more a napkin situation.

    Or an itchy nose/nares area.. *sniff* :wacky:

    Beak rubbing can be a signal of ownership in some birds ;) it's a way to say, "this is mine!" to avoid a squabble.
