My orange wing amazon has never really been a biter,but that has changed.Recently he bites me when I try to put him back in his cage and when I get his food and water dish to fill them up.
I have had Beau about 2 months,my father passed away and Beau was his.He got him as a baby and Beau is now 13 years old.I know you're thinking that is the problem,but it's not .For almost 2 months after Dad died Beau was just fine with me.He would step up ,want me to scratch him and so forth.We bonded very well since he already knew me.I didn't move him,I moved into Dad's so that isn't the problem.
I've read alot about biting behavior and how to change it I've tried the methods and nothing is working.I care very deeply for him ,but my trust in him is dwindling.He is biting very hard,bruising me and making me bleed.I know Beau likes me,so what could the problem be? Like I said,it just started last week.It is getting to the point I can't let him out of his cage.We are both very unhappy with the situation.If anyone can give me a clue as to why his behavior changed so quickly I wish you would share it with me.I feel like my realtionship with Beau is in jeopardy. Help!!
