Most goffins play with their feet. I have a 7 year old goffin who still acts like a baby and sticks her feet in her mouth and chews her toenails.

I wouldn't be alarmed, but to play it safe, have him checked by an avian vet. He may have something stuck in the top of his mouth.

If this is a new behavior, then you should have the bird looked at by an avian vet. Dr B has not been answering questions for the past few weeks, so you can't wait for him to answer this.

If you do not have an avian vet, you can use this Find an Avian Vet link to look for one.
