    Quaker Parrot suddenly aggressive and bitey

    Hi there, I've had my boy Opie (2 years old) for a year and a half now. He has always been a very affectionate, smart, gentle boy. Initially he was scared of everything and over time he grew more and more confident. He comes to me voluntarily for scratches, cuddles, or if he just wants to be...

    Angry bird! Please help!

    Hello! I recently purchased my first Indian Ringneck about 2 weeks ago. The breeder said that he/she (no idea of the gender currently) was hand reared and is about 13 weeks. When I got him home I opened the cage door and allowed him to move into his new big boy cage, the one he was kept in by...

    Aggression towards women

    Greetings, I recently adopted a pineapple conure (around 5 months old) 2 months ago (also I don't know my parrot's gender but I feel like she is a female) and I've noticed she lunges towards women to bite them and I don't know to keep her under control when guests come over but with males she...

    Hormonal Quaker?

    Hi all, I've had Arthur, my 1 year and 7 month old male quaker, for a little under a year and a half. He loves learning new phrases, flying and shredding toys but lately his behavior has been getting bad. I'm used to him yelling when we leave him alone in a room and I understand that's his...

    Is my bird grieving?

    So I posted a few days ago that one of my parrotlets died at the emergency room, and since I've been home and interacting with my other parrotlet (she's my only bird now), I've noticed she's been biting me more. I can tell that she's also molting it looks like, but I was wondering if it could...

    Territorial Agression - Green Cheek

    I just adopted a green cheek conure 10 days ago. He is 15 years old and believed to be male (but never tested). He was raised by the same family since he was very young and is supposedly tame. His primary human went to college and as a result, has not received enough attention for awhile - which...

    Bites when training

    I have a couple of issues I'd appreciate some help with. I've restarted training of Sammie, my 13 1/2 year old white bellied. She's been with me since she was 4 months. I'm experiencing the same issue I had when I initially started target training. I get her to touch a stick or bell and...

    Some things that helped me with a macaw who hates men

    I wanted to make a post just about this, since it seems to be a pretty common problem with rescued parrots. I'm no expert, but I wanted to share the things that have been effective and the process itself. Keep in mind, it's been months and months to get here; it didn't happen overnight and takes...

    One bird is possessive of the other...

    I have two DNA-sexed Peach-faced Lovebird sisters who are now three years old. One often regurgitates for the other. In fact, Clementine will beg for it as if she were a baby where she gently flaps her wings, bends down and forward, and opens her mouth for Penelope to feed her. This behavior has...

    A week ago, I rescued a 10 yo female Jenday Conure from a lady online. I was told she'd step up, was friendly, and preferred men. That, besides her age and gender, is all I was told. She refused to let me come over to meet the bird, which I found understandable given internet stranger, but I...

    Targeted Lorikeet Aggression - Help much appreciated

    My sister has owned a small rainbow lorikeet for about 2 months now.

    Is this a sign of agression?

    Hii, so I have a 3 yo BFA, bonded to me since I got her as a babe. She is quite mild for an Amazon, not too aggressive or even loud. Spends a lot of her time playing upside down, hanging, or swinging in her cage and outside. However, lately, when I ask her to step up when she is on top of her...
