    Flying and attacking

    I have a conure, he is very young, I’ve had him less than a year. I know conures are bitey and nibbly by nature, and his normal bites are pretty hard, but I’m used to them and I’m okay with them. He respects me, and you could say I’m his favourite. The issue is my mom. He bites her really really...

    Confusing behaviour around biting

    Hey guys! May be a long post but please read the full post before responding. So the problem: My conure, since coming home, has had problems with my roommates. It's almost always hands but he occasionally bites faces. This is a behaviour he rarely displays towards me, but I've explicitly...

    Need help please

    Hello I’m really hoping for some advice for our newest family member who is a lovely little male galah. He is a rescue and we’ve had him for around 2 months. Our vet aged him at around 2. He was found and handed in to a fauna rescue group who let us adopt him and from the start he seemed to...

    Is my new bird already bonded to me or does he hate me?

    We just brought home a ~14YO male Senegal from a home that wasn't spending much time with him. He seems to be settling in well so far - no plucking, he's vocalizing to us a lot, and he has willingly stepped up off of his cage a few times despite some territorial strutting. What I'm finding...

    Change in sun conure behavior

    Our family’s sun conure is 1 year and will turn 2 years old in October 2023. He was really my dads bird. My dad took the time to train him to step up, turn around, fly over. We all fed our bird and played with him. Cuddle with our bird on our neck, give him kisses, scratch our fingers on his...

    I dont know what to do anymore, my parrot has random moments when he is aggressive.

    Hello, Let me start by saying this, I wanted a pet, needed something to give me a bit of purpose and take care of. A few years ago I developed allergies to cats and dogs and this has really brought me down. So I decided to get a parrot, did some research, looked for what would be suitable for...

    Mood Swings

    Hi all! Questions about my Quaker's behavior as of late: Usually she is very friendly and sweet, playful, mostly chill with being touched. In the past few days she's been, well... bitchy. She wants to fly to my shoulder and hang out but not be touched. She's happy to step up to my finger most...

    How do I stop my young conure from biting?

    Hello guys! I’m new to owning a conure, I’ve owned birds basically my whole life (cockatiels, lovebirds, budgies) so I have a little bit of understanding with these guys.

    Step-up fail, biting boy

    I need some advice on teaching my Alexandrine to step up. He's 4 months old and I brought him home 1 month ago, his gender is unknown (I just use he/him for him, becuse why not). He was raised by his parents so he was wild and fearful when arrived. By now, he's a lovely, active, playful...

    New Conure bites

    Hi all, I have a Pineapple conure and I’ve been training with it for a few days. I think I’ve gone wrong somewhere with the training. It happily comes to my hand but now bites if I don’t give it a treat. How can I undo this behaviour?

    Jenday suddenly bites, shows aggression. How to stop this?

    I made a post here a while ago explaining that my (supposedly female, I haven't sexed her but I'm just guessing) Jenday was being aggressive towards some of my family members, and that it was likely hormonal behavior ... I thought it would end, but has almost gotten worse ... My Jenday conure...

    Hey everybody! Brand new to this website. My girlfriend and I just adopted a rescue sun conure from the SPCA and we adore her. She is extremely cuddly (especially with me) and loud (to be expected from a sunny). We've had her for about 3 weeks, and one issue I have noticed with her is that she...

    Conure overly clingy and biting issue

    Hello, I guess this thread is a follow up to my last post. My GCC is usually just nippy which doesn't scratch skin or draw blood. But recently he would be mad at me and bite my VERY hard after I leave him in the cage for even just a couple hours. This aggressiveness can last up to 3 days during...

    Quaker Mode

    Hi everybody! This is my first post :) I have a four month old Quaker named Rainy. I think s(he) is a female. She's a crossover breed, and the breeder told me they usually end up being female.

    Hello, I have recently adopted a 3yo African grey called George from a friend who no longer had time for him.

    how can I stop biting?

    How can I stop my Conure from biting? He gets jealous of every object I hold. I can't wipe up his poop without him come running and biting to the point of bleeding. He does the same when I hold remotes, phones, bottles, etc. I've been told so many different things. Ignore the behavior or say...
