Sudden change in behavior.
Bogey and Kate! - lovebirds
I have two Lovebirds, one Fischer and one Peach Faced... siblings. Given to me last Christmas as hatchlings, we hand fed them, and they've been great fun (second pair I've owned). For some reason, the Peach Faced has become instantly, overnight, very aggressive... biting (drew blood from my finger this morning), and absolutely impossible to handle.
I usually place a hand in the cage to pick them up several times a day, but this morning, this one only would bite, fluff feathers, and try to bite at me through the cage bars. I handle them multiple times daily, and they've been very, very tame and easy to hold. In fact, I held them both yesterday twice for extended periods, with no problems. Then, this sudden behavior this morning for no apparent reason... The Fischer, though more skittish than usual, is still o.k. to handle. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance...
