    Bird digging?

    My baby Romeo is around 2 and whenever I take him out of his cage he buries his beak in my hand and digs away like a cat/dog. He also regurgitates sometimes? Has any one else had this happen? Thanks a bunch :cag:

    i'm a new big-bird owner, having only cockatiels and budgies in the past. I recently got a baby female CAG.
