Re: Attacking Birds Explain?

Levi and Sterretjie will make good friends Sharon.

An attacking bird and a bird that bites every now and then because we did not listen are completely two different things.

An attacking bird does not give warning, it is enough for that bird to just see the human he does not like and then immediately go over to seek and destroy mode. My girl runs - and she only has one proper working leg - to where ever my husband is standing and bites down with the intention to kill. Now that 60% of her flight feathers came in she is back to her old self of flying to him and attacking. Luckily she can not gain hight yet. Just like Levi she will always be clipped.

She does the same with my daughter but in a different manner. She will jump onto her lap and then act all cute and vulnerable, begging for a scratch. The moment that my daughter moves Sterretjie lunges forward and bites.

They are a bit psycho.

That what I was hoping for.! I can say now Mondo is NOT an Attacker!
Tried some more training last night, Mondo would have none of it, He seemed he was trying to teach me? After about 3 or4 tries, he did comply, but didn't take the treat, he just bit my finger, no blood at all this time. I thought who is training who here! LOL

Re: Attacking Birds Explain?

Update...I was installing a new perch the other day, Mondo was on the top of the cage, walked over and grabbed at my hair, when I jerked back cause it startled me, I looked up at him and he broke out one of his laughs!
Little stinker seems to be just playing! He no longer bites hard now, just the normal beaking they do.
