    Aggressive Electus?

    Two weeks ago I obtained a female eclectus parrot (a year or younger) that I was told was tame and did not bite. However on the second day of having her she did bite me when I was fixing a perch. It wasn't super hard, but it did hurt a lot as I have fibromyalgia (more intense pain). Needless to...

    Bonded rescue conures

    I kind of inherited a pair of green cheeks after their owner (family friend) could not keep them anymore. They have been in the same cage together since the original owner got them (3-4 years) and are now bonded. I've been training them every day for a few months now, but when it comes to cage...

    Sudden aggression

    Hello :) My sun conure, Skyler, is 4 months old and has been biting me. The bites used to seem like they were just playful and happened when he was too excited or when climbing all over me and he needed grip. Whenever he bites, I calmly but firmly tell him “no biting” and put him away for a...

    I have two Green Cheek Conure, Lewis and Lance. Lewis was my first conure and is about to turn two, which I heard can cause them to behave horribly. After a week of aggressively biting me, even flying to me just to attack, he is finally nice to me again. He broke the skin on my fingers more...

    Advice for Extremely Hormonal Lovebird?

    My peachfaced lovebird, Olive, is about 2 and recently (as of March) has gotten more and more hormonal and aggressive.

    Am I doing something wrong with training??

    Okay so its been a couple days since I last posted and I'm just losing all hope. I'll try and explain. My cockatiel Theo (barely 5 months now) was getting so good at stepping up and once in a while he would do it without millet! I've had him for about 5 maybe 6 weeks. I trained with him for...

    Biting Budgie Draws Blood

    One of my budgies, Sky (or Skylar Blue when she’s being naughty), has suddenly gotten very aggressive. The first couple months I had her, she was fairly sweet. The last 4 months or so though, she has started biting all the time—both in and out of the cage. I have bite marks all over my fingers...

    Aggressive Adopted Quaker

    I adopted Eddie about a year and a half ago and I don't know his background. Any time I get too close to him, he starts hissing and trying to bite me. He always seems really comfortable around me, but when I try to handle him, he starts going a little crazy. Usually, Eddie and I just sit...

    Video I´m confused: What is going on?

    I have experienced one of the weirdest moments with my birds today. I want to share it and see if you guys have any insight as to what may be causing the behavioural shift.
