Cockatoo Seems to be Scratching with Seeds
My well adjusted Triton, who I have had for 15 years, has recently started the oddest behavior. She goes in her cage gets sunflower seeds or pellets and comes out to stand on the open hatch door. Once she gets on the door, she begins grooming under her wings with the seed in her mouth, but seems to be using it for something because within a few seconds she drops it. Then she goes back in the cage and gets another couple of seeds. She''l do this for awhile, and aside from the slightly greater mess she makes, it's not a big deal. I was just curious. Anyone have an idea what the heck she is doing?
