My newest lovebird, Chico, seems to enjoy getting up on top of my head lately. At first, I assumed he was preening my hairs, but realized last week that he had worried a small sore into my scalp. I doctored it with bacitracin ointment and kept chasing him off when he tried to get up there again.
Yesterday evening, I realized I had forgotten to chase him off again, and lo and behold, he had once again broken the healed scalp area.
Has anyone else had this experience, and if so, how were you able to curb it? I'd hate to relegate him to his cage all the time, as he has several play areas around my living room and computer area. And to tell the truth, I really enjoy his presence on my shoulders or chest.
