My GCC Nibbles turns 7 months tomorrow. The last week or so there has been some new / odd behavior. She no longer wants to be petted. She has also picked up a new sound. It sounds like a tennis shoe squeaking on a tile floor. It's loud and I have no idea where she picked it up. It isn't the call she uses for attention, so I'm not sure what the purpose is. For the longest time I could get her onto my finger and hold her in front of me and say Jump. She would leap to my shoulder. Now she turns around the other way and refuses to do it at all. Nothing has changed in the house that I can pinpoint. I work from home, so I get a lot of interaction with her on a daily basis. There is less on the weekend because I'm not working so I don't sit in front of the computer. It's been this way since the day we brought her home. This evening she was fairly obnoxious with it. I tried to play with her to see if I could figure out what it is, but I have no clue. I tried ignoring the noise and turning my back, but that didn't help. Eventually I put her back in the cage and turned the light down. She basically had a temper tantrum and when she was done she went to bed. She seems to want something, but I'm not picking it up. Any ideas ? A friend who raises parrots and conures suggested it could be hormonal and I just have to wait it out.
