Alex the Jardine
My husband recently (have had him for 2 days)bought me a jardine parrot. I have never owned a bird before but have always wanted a parrot. He was making noises when we got him like chirping. I tried to handle him and he bit me and since then he doesnt make any noises. We talk to him.
Today I let him roam around the house and he explored and walked around. Then I tried to handle him again. Again he bit me, I put him on a perch above his cage and he stayed put. After that my husband tried offering him a peanut and he jumped, and after that he was loose in the house but got under the table and wouldn't come out and stayed in the same spot for like an hour..
Finally got him in his cage got bitten again, but now he just sits on his perch and makes no noise. Is he sad. Should I be worried would appreciate any advice.
My husband was told he says 3 words and is about a year old...that's all we know about him.
