I have two beautiful happy friendly rainbow lorikeets my problem is that they bite me then lick the blood to the point of pulling the scabs off previous bites just to make them bleed they are well fed so it shouldn't be a vitamin deficiency does anyone have any ideas or suggestions

I have a conure, he likes to bite and scrape wounds, pulling scabs. When I sweat he likes to lick sweat, since then I realized that maybe he bit my hand because he needed salt. I tried dipping my hand in salt water, and it's true, he didn't bite my hand, he just licked it
