Amazon behavior.
by: Michelle

My nine year old Amazon freaked out when I went from blonde to red. She would not stop trying to bite me till I had to go back to blonde.

You must have done something to make him/her upset with you. Please be careful and be sensitive in the future.

behavior changes
by: Judith

Thank you for the response. Beau's cage is near to a window,but has always been.I have moved the room he is in around a little,but would that make him bite me instaed of going back to his cage? I don't know also if it could be horomaonal,he is 13 now,is taht a common age for this.Could it be that he just doesn't like me anymore? I haven't been treating him any differently. Judith

Amazon sudden behavior change
by: The Vet

This is honestly a common problem with Amazons and part of their typical personality. However, sudden changes in behavior can be contributed to health problems, environmental changes, and changes in their routine.

Ask yourself:

Has anything changed in your home, new pet, new room mate, moved his cage, etc? Is he near a window? Is there something around him that is making him nervous? Have you changed your hair style, painted your nails, etc?

What size cage is he in? Are his wings clipped (can he fly)? Does he play on top of his cage? Does he ride on your shoulder? What does he eat? Have you changed his diet recently? These are a few of the questions that should be answered to help find he has changed.
