Blue and Gold Macaw bites his claws and hollers

Our blue and gold macaw "Sunshine" bites his claws and actually acts like he gets mad at them.

Why would he do this? Does he need some special vitamin or mineral he could be missing. He eats very well and has a large variety of foods he likes, bird as well as people food?

B&G bitting his feet
by: kim

Hey, mine does the same exact thing when she is mad or frustrated, its like she is mad at her feet. I have been reading that other owners have the same issue but no one seems to know why? I have taken mine to the Vet but still no answers.

Hello William,

I am not sure why he is doing this either. You might consider taking him to an avian vet to make sure there is not something wrong with his feet or nails that is causing this behavior.
