Sun Conure insists on attacking my daughters friends
My Sun Conure seems to attack anyone my daughter brings over to our home. Male/Female it doesn't matter. Marley (my sun conure) is very affectionate to all of us in our family. As well as some of our guests that come in to our home, but whenever she brings someone in our home, he does not like it at all, an will fly to them an try to bite them.
He was given to us twice, my niece was original owner of him, then she had a baby an wished not have him due to the loud squawking an fear of waking her infant baby, and in when her baby was older, she took him back, and well during that time she wasn't very nice to him, kept him locked up an covered for a great length of time. and apparently there must have been some brooms used towards him in a negative manner.
So we took the conure back gladly, it took him a bit of time to reaclamate to us again. He is very good with myself an my daughter, he snuggles, talks up a storm, mimics sounds, laughs, says step up, love you, kiss kiss, my sons name jake, i also taught him douchebag, night night, amongst some things that i won't say on here. There are times he squawks loudly, but that is usually when he wants attention, for the most part he is a great bird who is loved to death, He roams freely amongst the house for alot of the day with boundaries. He is about 3yrs old. He was handfed by my niece. He truly despises her now, when she comes over, she attacks her.
I do believe he remembers the people that weren't nice to him.
He is nice to all in our family. He doesn't attack everybody that comes over our house. Only my daughters friends. I really don't know why, i feel bad for them, they are petrified, they have done nothing to him.
With that being said, Anyone have any ideas/suggestions, answers to possible reasons why he does that.. ??? Thank you very much, any responses are greatly appreciated!!!
