How quickly does a parrot pick his "human"?
Hello everyone.I researched quite a bit about companion parrots and which one would be a good family parrot. We decided on a Meyer's. We got him from a breeder 10 days ago and he already seems like he picked my husband to bond with. We (myself and two kids ages 13 and 10 1/2) all handle him equally.
He is quite nippy with everyone except my husband. We try not to react but when it hurts...it's hard not to pull back but we are working on it. "Jojo" follows my husband with his eyes and has attempted to fly to him from across the room (he is clipped). Once that bond is made will my husband always be his favourite? I wanted a family bird and I wanted to be able to cuddle it since Meyer's apparently have that cuddly disposition. I didn't think he would pick his mate until sexual maturity. Suggestions would greatly be appreciated
