    Normal or not?

    Ive never seen this on a lovebird before, maybe because this is the first baby lovebird I’ve spent an extended amount of time around and it’s an age thing or I just haven’t payed enough attention to the adult lovebirds under chin area? Nonetheless, is this normal and is there a reason for it?
