    The girls are pecking my toes! I think they think my painted toenails are cherry tomatoes! [​IMG]

    Also, when hand feeding them, one pecks my hand so hard it hurts. The other is very gentle (the other 2 haven't tried yet). Is there a way to get her to go easier?

    I had one bite me badly enough to get a blood blister. I quickly swooped her up and held her tight, and I did not let her get any of the treats that she made me fling all over the place.

    Sometimes they forget they aren't in charge. Just like kids.
