Suddenly Aggressive Sun Conure
My girlfriend and I have a 2 and a half year old Sun Conure named Margarita that has suddenly become aggressive with both of us at seemingly very strange times. We try to make it a point to snuggle with him in our bed every night when we are settling down watching TV.
The other night I had him on my shoulder while I was playing a video game, and he out of nowhere bit me on my neck really hard. I mean really hard. He didnt give any warning that I would have noticed- it just came out of nowhere. When i picked him off my shoulder and placed him down in front of us on the bed he ran at my hand which was holding the game controller.
The next day we had him cuddling in bed again and he started puffing up and charging at my girlfriends arm when she was holding the remote controller to the TV. A while later he did the same thing when I was holding a glass.
What we have come to conclude after testing his behavior is that whenever we hold anything in our hands near him, whether when hes in or on his cage, on our shoulder, or on the bed with us, he seems to get really aggressive and start trying to bite and attack not only the device in our hands, but us as well. Does anybody have any idea why this might be happening and what the potential solution is? Please help!
