We have a Jardine Parrot, we believe he is about 8 years old we got him from an acquantaince about a year ago. He has chosen me as he main person. I can do no wrong and he has never bite me. He has bite my partner when we first got him but rarely bites her anymore.
However he routinely flys at both my kids and especially my son. He will fly at them and land and then start to bite them. he will stop biting when I yell at him. He then flys back to me. At which time he is "timed out" in his cage. There seems to be no reason for this behavior.
This morning we were all at the table eating breakfast parrot included when he ran across table and landed on my son and bite him. Why is the parrot doing this and how do I correct the behavior. Ollie is an adorable little guy. We have been working with Ollie and my son. Ollie will allow my son to "tickle him" Ollie will also sit on my sons shoulder for short periods. But then ten minutes later Ollie is attacking. Neither one of the kids does anything to torture or harass the bird. Ollie will take treats from either of the kids and is quite gently while taking food.
If anyone could provide us with some help we would appreciate it.
