aggressive senegal but only to me
(East Greenbush, NY)
I have a 2 1/2 year old Senegal that I got a little over a year ago from a breeder because the woman who originally had him didn't have enough time for him. He was very bonded to me for about a year and then he suddenly become bonded to my mother.
I bought a Myers Senegal Hybrid in April and they have been caged together ever since. They get along great. My Myers Senegal Hybrid is the sweetest thing, he loves everyone. I can't pick up my Senegal anymore because every time I do he lashes into my hand and I have to pry his beak open to get him off.
I am downright scared of holding him anymore but I will scratch his head. He does this thing with his wings when he is with my mother where he puts them out kind of in a heart shape and then he doesn't want to be touched.
My mom can pick him up with no problem. He will occasionally nip at her but he never bites her hard enough to draw blood unlike he does with me. I bring him to the bird center occasionally and everyone there can pick him up no problem.
I am just worried about not being able to keep him especially if I move out and have kids. I am also worried about separating my Senegal and my Myers Senegal Hybrid since they are so bonded to each other. I was just wondering if maybe I could put him on something temporarily to see if it would help.
