Vicious green cheek
(UK Henley )
My boyfriend and I have one green cheeked conure and one maroon belliedconure, we bought them a year ago and just about have them both trained. Well that seemed to be the case until recently the green cheeked conure turned on me.
Her name is Sunny and she has always been a little bit odd, very very shy and what you may call a runt. But with love and care, and by letting her clipped wings grow out she seemed to get more confident and happy. Nothing has changed except that my boyfriend has been working away from home more recently.
Sunny has become possessive of her cage, will not step up and I'm scared to put my hand near her, her crest is always up and she makes vicious sounds whenever I pass by her cage. She is f fine and still lovely to my boyfriend. Any suggestions as to why she has turned-on me? Or how to solve her possessiveness and biting? Also I'm pretty sure she's not I'll or anything.
