Parakeet - change in personality
by Jean Aschman
(Fairhope, AL USA)
I have a year old parakeet that I took from my mom - she was very aggressive and would bite people a lot. I have worked with her for the last 6 months and she became very sweet, outgoing, sang and did cute goofy things - wanted to be with me all the time, taught her to sit on my finger and could take her out of the cage.
About 3 days ago she quit having anything to do with anyone - she is back to being aggressive, she stays in front of her mirror and doesn't want me to touch her anymore.
She is still eating and drinking ok - her stools are white w/black - I am sad that she seems to have regressed. She is loosing a lot of feathers - but her eyes and nose look clear - she just seems scared again
