Re: Baby territorial behavior

it won't be a one time thing it may take a few days maybe a week. but your bird recognizes patterns......A = B. that they get. after a bit they will learn something like a certain noise will get more attention and less being shunned by biting.

Tried it a few more times, she is toning it down or so i think. Im trying not to make her hate me in the process. Do you know if this is typical baby behavior or is she unique?

Re: Baby territorial behavior

Re: Baby territorial behavior

Re: Baby territorial behavior

Does she have a hut or shadowy space in her cage?
How much sleep does she get nightly?
Do you ever let her exit (and re-enter) the cage on her own time (in supervising, but removed)?
If yes to my last question, do you always shut the door as soon as she re-enters?

Re: Baby territorial behavior

I have tried to be consistent with this. But its just not changing much. She still gets angry when things are taken away from her, whether it be toys or food now.



Noodles, she doesnt have a hut, she has one of them sea grass mats laid out though.
Sleep shes in her cage at 10 and out by 8-9 (she screams at 7 40 every day till shes let out)


When she goes in her cage in her own, i just leave her to it till she comes back out. In terms of shutting the door, yes i do. I usually have to leave her in the cage for some time in the afternoon so i give her an apple to lure her in then i close the door behind her. Could that be the reason for her territorial behavior? If i dont do that she eats the apple and comes out, doesnt really stay in her cage

Your bird needs 10 hours of sleep MINIMUM per night (on a schedule) so you need to start setting bedtimes earlier--- yes, they do want out when they wake up. From the time bedtime starts to the time your bird wakes, you have 10-12 hours UNLESS you wake them up by moving around. Mine goes to bed fine if there is still some noise, but the second I get up, she hears the noise and stirs in her cage. If your bird is going to bed at 9 or 10 and waking up with you, that's WAY too little sleep.
