    Quote:Normal? Yes, maybe not common

    If it is causing damage try seperating them.

    Imp- Good luck

    Mine do too, they are still learning what to do, also they'll be attracted to each other's egg tooth so will be pecking each others beaks a lot. This helps the egg tooth fall off. [​IMG]
