Conure started biting people
We have a green cheek conure, who is little over a year old and has been with our family since he was 6 weeks old. He's been the most loving birdie ever. He doesn't know what a cage as he lives with us freely, ie. flies around, eats with us, sleeps in the bed with my daughter.
However about a month or so ago he began biting people , who'd come in to house, and since we don't have many coming these will be the bitten ones. We also have a Mollucan, who we rescued from an obusive owner, and who is afraid of anything and everything. The two birdies were like brothers for almost a year. Recently we moved and the little one starting attacking the big birdie, who is scared for his life.
It is impossible to "punish" the conure because once he realizes he's done something wrong he flies away and wouldn't come. Now he started biting me time to time as well. I understand he's scared of the new home and needs time to adjust, sadly we don't have time because while he's adjusting the molucan is constantly in danger of being bitten or he might by accident out of protectiveness for his life kill the little one.
My daughter suggested we clip Scotty's (conure) wings. Some bird specialists say it might make him even more aggressive. I actually began thinking that it might give us a chance to train him.
