My Conure Biting
(Palm Bay, FL)
Several months ago, my Conure, Mocha, bit me hard for no reason. I lightly smacked him out of reflex and now he bites me consistently. About 10 minutes ago, he flew to me and bit the side of my face, drawing blood. Yesterday when I had him on my shoulder, he bit my upper lip badly. He constantly screams and I can't stand it any longer.
A woman who sells lots and lots of different birds from her "shop" at the flea market, opened only on Fri, Sat, and Sundays, says she'll take him and keep him as a pet. She will not "get rid" of him. She will take him home during the week.
I've had Mocha since he was 10 weeks old...he is now 4 years. I no longer get pleasure from him. I think I dislike him more than love him. Should I give him to this lady who knows Conures and the noise?
