"My son came home from work the other day and when he opened the front door to walk in, a peach-faced lovebird landed on his shoulder. We have it in a cage in a room, because we have 8 cats. I do rescue & fostering. I've been doing some reading up on these types of birds and have some concerns about him/her. He seems to be scratching around his neck a lot and will put his paw on top of his head to scratch also. I don't know if this is normal or not, but the end of his beak seems like a black color and he keeps rubbing it on things in the room. Tonight we bought him a banana flavored cuttle bone to see if that will help. The first 2 days he seemed to be okay, but tonight he seems very agitated. By this I mean that he just kept flying from one place to another squawking his head off. Even when we put him back in his cage around 9:00 p.m. he just can't seem to settle down. Should I be worried about this? We are waiting to see if someone will put a lost ad in the paper. If after a week, there is nothing, then we will have to place him somewhere else, because of the cats. They are upset that they can't go into the room that they are accustomed to. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I should also mention that he is friendly by coming on your shoulder and finger, but will try to bite now and then."
