my bird doesnt like me anymore
by Diana Smith
I have a hand raired Rainbow Lorekeet called Lorry. I have had Lorry since Christmas 2007. Lorry has always been very close to me but not my husband or son. Lorry did'nt do a lot of flying until recently. He was so attached to me that I was unable to move from his cage where I put him to another room without him flying onto my sholder befor I got to the other room.
Recently he has not wanted to be put in his cage so that I could go out (he his put in his cage when no one is at home and is let out if someone is home), he has flown away and hid behind things so that he would not be put away. I have had to chase him from room to room and he has not stepped up onto my hand as he always has.
I have had to catch him with a grip to put him away. He now will not have a bar of me and is scared of me when I go near him. This has upset me greatly as he has been my baby for 10 months, has played with me and been with me and trusted me explicictly. What can I do and why doesnt he love me anymore.
