Hi, I’m new to the forum. I recently adopted a 4 year old male blue naped amazon. We have reason to believe he has been passed around many families and was abused. He has a large scab on the top of his head and the previous owners kept him in a tiny dog cage and only fed him sunflower seeds. We’ve had him since July 14th and he has been living in my room. Whenever he’s with me he’s very sweet, he gets on my shoulder, he comes with me everywhere I go. He loves getting his head scratched by me and he is overall very affectionate with me. However, whenever I put him with my mom in her room for more than 5 minutes, he becomes extremely aggressive towards me. His tail fans, his eyes pin and he flies at me and bites me very hard. He will bite my mom sometimes, but he doesn’t fly at her just to attack. After I get him back alone with me in my room, he starts to behave normally again after a few hours or after sleeping. Shortly after I bring him back to my room, he will still fly at me and attack me if I stand up. I don’t understand why he behaves this way, I would think if he didn’t like my mom he would be flying and attacking her, not me. If you have any idea as to why he is behaving like this or if you know of any solutions please let me know. Thank you.
