Budgie Biting Suddenly
(Liverpool NSW AUS)
I have owned my hand raised budgie since he was in the nest. He usually loves to come out of his cage but is only allowed out when I let him out. He has a night cage and a day cage, but he prefers the day one as it has bells.
All of a sudden he has started acting very aggressive towards a bell and when I try to pick him up he bites me, hard! He has never bitten me so hard before, even when I forget to feed him. So I put him in his night cage for 10 mins with the sheet over it. When I get him out of the night cage he is fine. But then if I try to get him out of the day cage again he will bite again. Why? After 3 years together? It can't be a change of hormones. Nothing else has changed out of the daily routine or his cage.
