Re: Obtained a mate for Amazon parrot, now both are aggressive

With the situation as is you need to have a cage that lets you remove and replace food/water bowels without opening the door and exposing yourself to serious damage.
I know from experience a yellow nape can do some serious damage.

When my YNA is in "a bad mood" and I just have to move him the trick I found best is this.
Get a towel. Get bird to grab hold of towel (you don't need to wrap the towel around him). Puck up towel with bird hanging on to the other end. Set bird down in new location (he/she will usually end up on his/her back) and wait a bit for him/her to let go and flip right side up.

I had 2 pair bonded amazons and the female remained friendly with me so it is possible but 10 days is so early you can't predict how it will work out in the long run.
cockatiel family :
Lucky (M pied)
Baby (M pied)
Pinky (F lutino) R.I.P.

Sunny mother (cinnamon)R.I,P.
Cheeky father (whitface)
Angel (eldest lutino F)
Mango (middle pearl F)
Popeye (male grey M)
