Hello all! i need need NEED ANSWERS! I bought my first baby birdy from Petco (dont come at me) 5 years ago. I named him Birdbird because im awesome at names. He is a Pineapple GCC. I have always loved him. We would go EVERYWHERE together! He loved to snuggle under my sweaters holding onto my undershirt or bra and just sleep or peek his head out. Absolutly a scaredy cat but a strong boy all at once. Needless to say he was my best friend! Him and I would lay on my pillow for hours while i was on my phone, he would snuggle up and lay over my mouth and warm himself with my hot breath and fall asleep. He had a bubble for sure, he didnt like other people (at first / new people / vets). He would thin out, lean away, and try to get back to me. He was so great! 3 years ago i thought to get him a sister for those lonely days when we were at work. Now before you say, "theres your problem! You got another bird and he loves her (yes shes a lady) and youve been replaced you dingus!" Well, no. Thats not what happened. He is the dominant one. Especially around food. I mean the pecking order was REAL with him. Food is life. (Roudybush pellets and chop) so they lived in separate cages, occasionally sleeping in birdbirds cage together at night. Then about 6 months ago, i started leaving them in the same cage all together. (We adopted a 26 year old cockteil who needed a bigger cage, so we moved him into Felix's (baby lady birds) cage) So this may have to do with his behavior. I just want it to stop. HE IS SO GOD FRICKIN AGGRESSIVE! Like a completely different bird! 100 percent changed! They dont do the frick frack, theres no nesting materials, they just snuggle when they snooze. Birdbird only wants to literally EAT MY FACE OFF! When i open their cage to let them roam around, he IMMEDIATELY goes to wherever my face is (say im cleaning the cage liners or rearranging toys, changing food or water, or even wiping down dressers near by) he WILL LITERALLY FOLLOW ONLY MY FACE AROUND AND DO THAT LEANING LUNGING THING AT. MY. FACE. i have N E V E R! One time i forgot to keep my distance and when i looked up he snapped down on my bottom left lip and didnt let go, grinding his beak deep into my flesh. I was screaming and crying while my husband helped get him off me with a wooden bird stick. I ran to the bathroom and cried in disbelief. He was my boy. My cuddle bug. I was in shock! He has bitten fingers and "scooped out chunks of fleash out of my finger with his bottom beak, has bitten my nose, my hands are permanently scarred all over. My lip was bitten 2 weeks ago and its permanently damaged. The bruising and swelling are completely gone, but there is nerve damage and a hunk of scar tissue. it permanently Feels numb like after a dentist shot. Im about to give him up. I cant take it anymore. If it were just the aggression that would be fine. I could accept him. But its the years of love that is thrown away. This has been getting worse and worse. The past month and a half has been the worst between us. I dont treat him any different. I still try to cup him (cuddle) and kiss his little white head. I miss my special guy. If you have ANYTHING to say, relate to, open up about, ANYTHING TO GIVE ME SOME HOPE OR AT LEAST PEACE OF MIND i welcome it with open arms! Yours truely: A super depressed mommy to a once beautiful relationship with my son. Ps: my daughter (felix) is also a gcc and shes very obedient! Is way snuggly and loves to dance with me. So theres sadness that she will trun out the same.
