A biting question

We adopted a Green Cheek from a loving family, who decided it was in her best interest to let a family take her who had more time to spend with her. She is amazing and came to us slightly timid but seemed to warm up to me almost immediately. She talks, whistles, and makes the most beautiful song when she is happy.

We were informed she didn't spend a lot of time out of her cage with them. We are the opposite, and she spends majority of her time out of the cage. She would either be perched next to me while I study at my desk, or on my shoulder preening me. We talk to her, kiss her, socialize with her, but again she mostly stayed near me. We also have a Sun Conure who is quite a character and is partial to my husband.

We have had her a several months now, and then all of a sudden her personality changed. She wants nothing to do with me. I try to get her out and she bites me, and not just a little nip but she will grab on and grind her beak on me until she draws blood. Last night I was laying in bed and my husband got her out. She loved on him, was singing and talking to him, then literally flew to me, hovered and then grabbed my hand and wouldn't let go. I yelled out because it really hurt, but she didn't attempt to stop. My husband had to get her.

It breaks my heart and I feel like I did something wrong, but I know I have not changed my behavior towards her. I have been trying to take her her favorite sunflower seeds and talk to her in a gentle loving voice and come to her slowly attempting to reassure her. I'm absolutely lost! I know that our Sun Conure is a spolied brat (I say that in a loving way) and the Sun nip and bites, burps at you and really has an attitude that is unique to her-Is it possible that the Green Cheek sees that behavior and is trying to imitate it or did I do something wrong? The two of them get along well. They sit together on the bedroom door and watch the world. We LOVE our birds and wouldn't trade them for the world, I just need help!

When my parrot sits on top of his cage he does not let anyone pick him up. But when he flys down he loves being held and will follow us around.

Vicious Biting

by Alex
(New York)

Why does my Jenday Conure viciously bite and attack my sister? She has never done anything to the bird, yet the bird hates my sister. My dad once opened the cage, well my sister was sitting on the bed in the same room, and then took a seat next to her. The bird started to bob her head, then she flew into my sister's direction to attack. My dad blocked the bird, so that she flew into his hand. The bird was planning on biting my sister, but she accidently bit my dad as hard as she could. Right before she flew, she was as puffy as she could get, bobbing her head with her beak open, and was stretching her neck up as high as it could go- her signs of aggression.

She does this when she plays with her cat ball as well, but my family thinks the bird is trying to be vicious to my sister. If we can't get her to be nice, we have to get rid of her. Is there anything we can do to change this behavior? PLEASE HELP US!

Stop biting

by Betty
(Deerfield, IL)

We are a almost 2 year old green cheek concure. Very nice in the cage but gets excited when taken out of the cage. He will not let me leave him and he won't go back to his house? How to I stop him from biting and going back to his house on his own?

I just purchased a 3 month old Fancy Green Cheeked Conure even though he was hand feed he seems to have not been handled very much. How can I go about trying to ease his behavior and try to get him a little more handlable (sp) He is a beautiful bird and I'm new at this. I don't want to make a mistake that is going to cause his little guy to act mean or scared.

aggressive Parrot

by Jill
(Port Charlotte, FL)

Hi! I recently adopted "Buddy", a 10 year old Amazon. When he first came to our home, he seemed like he was comfortable, talking to everyone, not biting or attacking. We have since moved and he is very angry. I know I need to get his wings clipped but, I was wondering if there was an issue of his age. Would this make him more aggressive? (His previous owner didn't want to get his wings clipped. He wanted Buddy to have the freedom of flight.) And also, can he be retrained?

I am his third owner and I want him to have the best life possible and I don't want him to be kept in the cage 24/7. Where do I start? Buddy is my first parrot and I don't want to quit on him.
Thank you for any advice you can give me!

Biting and opening his beak

by Vidya

I have had my lovebird Cherryo for about 8 months. He's grown really attached to me and he's the perfect little bird.
He will step up onto my shoulder and arm but whenever he sees my fingers he attacks. He flew into my backyard in the summer and we have been taking care of him and we don't know who his previous owners were. Since he is an adult bird it is really hard to get him to stop biting my fingers. Why does he do this?
Also he will open up his beak as if he's about to talk but he just sticks his tongue on the roof of his beak and opens and shuts it. He does this for hours and hours. What does this mean?

Our 15 yr old blue gold macaw has recently started charging people as they walk by her on one of her perches but is fine everywhere else. she also started staying on the bottom of this perch instead of on the branches as she does on other perches.

I have a nanday conure that is about 9 months old and although she seems to prefer me in our household she is always very edgy and bites me a lot. Can you tell me why she behaves like this? She also has an anoying habit of forcing her beak in the tip of my tongue and she seems to go into a transe, flapping her wings while crouching her body. How do I get this to stop?

Parrot Bitting and Angry

by Haja

Dear Sir, I have yellow Indian round neck (4 years old), he is very nice talking bird. Recently, she is very angry and feels irritation on his skin and plucks many feathers and it scratches too much. (Note : It is summer here in Thailand , very hot too).

I took him to a veteran, he said that it might be in stress and gave vitamin syrups in daily basis. For this I have to catch her by cloth and feed her by forcing him. So she feels very angry and arrogant after I feed. And she is very much afraid when I go near him. Th medicine course is still remains for another 1 week. So what should I do to make my parrot calm and to be friendly with him.

Please advise me, as I feel very upset.

Thank you.

Regards, Haja
