Itchy ear question.

My guy Ichi does this.. odd thing.

We have the food bowls attached to the cage, and he sticks his head between the bowl and the side of the cage and twists.. almost like he's got his head stuck, but he doesnt...

I keep thinking he's trying to scratch his ears, but when he's not doing that, he's not bothering his ears.

I clean his ears, and theres never any dark brown good, just a little bit of normal amberish color is on the tissue i use to gently rub his ears.

Any suggestions on why he might do it? Ive caught him doing it a few times this month, and once awhile ago.. It's not often.

he is VERY goofy.. do you think it could just be something that entertains him.. or maybe he thinks it'll get him attention or something?

Im not *seriously* worried about it at this point, but, still a little.. more curious then anything really though.

Input.... annnnnd go!

Oh, and if I can get a picture of it, I will... I normally have my phone on me or my xti handy. so, I'll try, and that might help someone go " Oh, that means... "
