Jenday charging and biting
I just got a 2yr old jenday conure 2 days ago that is charging at the cage and trying to bite whoever talks to it. I purchased this bird from a local pet store two days ago and she's not coming out of her cage or allowing anyone to get close to the cage.
I really have formed a bond with this bird but i'm feeling confused about her behaviour. Sometimes when you call her and apporach the cage she's ok and then out of no where when you go up to her and say hello she will try to bite you. When she bites, she bites to break the skin. ( this is concerning ) which has already happened to me twice. I have children and i want this bird to be our family pet but I'm not sure if this is just because she's in a new environment and scared, or if she has had a bad past and not tame. I'm really hoping for this to work out. But i have concerns in regards to my kids and it becoming a saftey concern for them when their around her.
I got her from a local pet store in my area 2 days ago and there is a 15 day guarantee for return, should I return her and maybe buy a baby jenday? but If I can I want to stick it out and see if this is a behaviour that we can work with and change. Considering she's 2 and showing behaviour problems Is it to late to have her become affectionate and interact with us and allow us to hold her and be close to her?
If you can help out it would be greatly appreicated any comments or suggestions would be wonderful.
