double yellow headed amazon - biting after almost 3 years.
My double yellow headed amazon. Has started biting me and appears angry after almost three years. He has always bitten my husband, but never me. For the last few months, he's be screaming in the evening time and seems angry. I thought it might be the season for him to scream to find a mate, but this biting has be concerned.
His diet hasn't changed and our at home routine hasn't changed either. I do work during the day and he's at home with our African red belly parrot (kept in separate cages)? Any suggestions on what to do about this recent biting and anger he has? I so want to keep him, but if I can't figure how to make him happy again and stop biting me, I'm afraid I won't be able to.
Do you think maybe it's a vitamin deficiency? I took him to bird vet when I first got him, and all the blood work and examination came back just fine, except when he was a young bird he must have had a wing broken. The vet said she could feel where the break was. My bird didn't even attempt to bite the vet.
I know only of his past seven-history, 3 with us and 4 with a prior family who kept him for four years, then had to rehome him as their circumstances changed. Any information or suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
