Female parrotlet chews her tongue
(Irvine, CA, USA)
My female parrotlet has started sometimes poking her tongue out the side of her beak and chewing it, this began about a week ago. It is not bleeding or showing any signs of damage, my male parrotlet that lives in the neighbouring cage (but whom she enjoys time out togther with) is not doing this. She appears to be more interested in finding nest sites and is sitting in her food dish more frequently, but is not displaying other behavioral changes. I am just curious in case this is indicative of any serious health concerns.
