bad behavior

  1. Jeagerbrot


    My sun conure is chewing through the paint coat on his A&E cage and I don't know what to do!! Should I buy a better quality cage like stainless steel or aluminum? I didn't even know a sized beak like his could chew through the paint. I also don't know if I should get in contact with a...

    Biting when stepping up!

    Hello everyone, A few days ago I bought a new green cheek conure. The breeder said he is around 10 months old and a male. He has been hand reared.

    Conure developing biting behavior

    Hi everyone. I've had my jenday conure Kahlo for about a month now :) He's always been a bit on the timid side, but recently, anytime I put out my finger and ask him to step up, he bites like bloody hell and leaves holes all over my finger :shifty: He always seems to get aggressive when I try to...

    Frazzled With Behavior: HELP BEFORE I LOSE MY MIND

    As many of you know I got Cooper the GCC on December 1st. I had no idea the situation he was coming from until I've spent more time with him. Most of the time he's okay, but I have a few things I get irritated with that he does, no matter how I try to get him to stop. 1 THE BITING I'm not...
