1 and half yr old male timneh has started dropping food out of his bowl like hes bored.
(windsor, on, canada)
hello, my 1 and half yr old male timneh, has decreased his intake of food and is now starting to pick up his food and throw it onto the cage bottom.he has never displayed this behavior before. i am concerned because he is not putting out as much excretions as before, but when he does it appears normal, he is not appearing sick his energy level is normal, although he has only just started doing this in the last 2 weeks and i am the second owner of him. for 5-6 months i have owned him now.
while i am a stay at home parent, i think hes displaying boredome, and someone told me to switch his food to different bowl locations in his cage so he has to find it rather then expect it in the same bowl always. should i be concerned about this behavior. is it a sign he is becoming sick, or is it more behavioral. and if so, what can i do to make him happier so he will be encouraged to eat his food rather then waste it. thx. tiff
