My Quaker has always been an energetic naughty bird until recently he has been biting his feet till they bleed, now he's just like a cute stuffed toy puffed up and sleeping.
He used to talk, make way too many noises and never shuts up. He hasn't bitten his feet for two days but i noticed blood on the perch today, strange thing is he bites into them most when around me.
It doesn't look like he has mites, he has never been with other birds as he is 9 months old and hand reared, however he does like to preen humans as well, and will take any excess skin of myself from cuts and scrapes, especially cuticals,,, do you know why there is a sudden change in behaviour
