Re: Horrible, Sudden Aggression in Green Cheek Conure

I still wouldn’t rule out an early bloomer, as it were. This could likely be a bit of prepubertal hormones kicking in, since 1 year is generally the accepted baseline for when puberty kicks in.

Could also be a bit of boundary testing. They definitely do this as well. Just keep enforcing rules, and this too shalll eventually end.

Moody behavior...testing boundaries...sounds a bit like a human child, right? It’s cause it is. They have the intelligence of 2-3 year old and often behave like it. Let that be a guide for you.
