Suddenly Hostile Mini Macaw
Hello, I have had my Mini Macaw for over 8 years now. Friends come and go, but he's always there for me. His behavior has been bit edgy this past week and he even nipped me once. My bird never lets anyone near him, he is always hostile and attacks them, but he never bites me.
I left him this morning and came back late at night. When I got home he was acting very aggitated. I went to pick him up and he tried to bite me, and he wont let me anywhere near him. I gave it an hour and he calmed down and acted like his old self, but he still wont let me touch him, and tries to bite me.
I have never seen him like this and it makes me afraid he is in some sort of pain or having a chemical imbalance. I would appreciate any advice, because I am very upset about this. Thank you.
