Jenday conure strange behaviour
(Gauteng, South Africa)
"My Jenday conure "Jaydee" has now for the past 3 days been playing underneath his cage lining. Making these funny squibbly squeeky noises. Is this normal?
He also never liked to be touched before and now (tonight) is cuddling in my neck, wanting me to scratch, stroke and pat him constantly. If I put him down on the floor he follows me like a puppy the whole time. He NEVER does this
My son got a baby budgie approx 4 weeks ago, could this be jealoussy? Because the budgie is getting lots of attention?
Or is it like a "mating" thing or is the conure broody? Or perhaps sick?
He also puffs up his feathers a lot. It is the beginning of winter here, so could this be due to the cold?"
