    I feel like i dont understand him at all :(

    Hi! So, I've had my black capped conure for around 4 weeks now. And I'm aware that it takes way longer to bond with and be friends with a bird, but I feel like me and him just..don't understand each other? Or where to go? He's 6 years old, and I knew getting an older bird would be a bit...

    New human baby now conure biting

    Hi All. I’m hoping you have some advice please. I’ve had a green cheek conure named Tiki for the last 8 years. She’s been pretty friendly, steps up reliably, and absolutely loves cuddling in my hair. We haven’t done much training with her but have been in general pretty lucky with her behavior...

    My bird is not going back in his cage

    I had my bird for almost a year now and he never had this problem before. After when I played with my bird, he won’t go back in his cage. He starts to bite me and hiss at me when I place my hand near him. He knows when I’m going to put him back in his cage, because he doesn’t bite me otherwise...

    Seek and Destroy.

    Hi, I am new to the group and this is my first post. I have had birds for a long time and think I know their body language pretty well. I have a new Green Cheek Conure, he’s 12 weeks old. He’s been hand reared but I don’t think handled too much so he is hand tame. Not silly tame. The baby...

    Sun conure bites and won’t let go

    I just got a conure yesterday and have had him all set up in my room, he likes hanging out on the top of the cage and to talk. He is very beautiful my only problem is his biting. I know birds are anxious about new environments so I understood at first and would leave him alone unless it was...

    One conure super calm, the other furious with me.

    So I have two male green cheek conures, I've only had them for a few months now. They were both fine with me up until this point, then one of them got sick about a month ago (Salem). He has been taken to a vet, all good now. When he got sick his personality changed, he used to be more neutral...

    Green cheek conure all of suddenly afraid of me

    Hello! I adopted my Green Cheek Conure, Sparky, 2 years ago from my sister. He doesn't get along well with other people, and was attacking me a LOT in the beginning. But I finally got him to get comfortable around me to the point where we cuddled every night. But a couple months ago I got them...

    Mirror-Crazed Caique

    Hello! About 6 weeks ago I adopted a caique, Loki, who I was told is around 3 years old. I didn’t get into parrots until a little over a year ago and am learning as much as I can when I have time. He has bit me twice and both times, looking back, were avoidable (if I had researched more I...

    My lovebird is biting me after I introduced her to a new lovebird

    Okay so this is going to be a long post but I'm generally confused. So Kiwi, rosy-faced my 3-month-old lovebird, my "female" lovebird (according to a breeder) flew to my dad while he was standing outside and she was really tamed. This was 28 days ago. She was extremely sweet and used to come to...

    green cheek conure displays of aggression?

    Hello all, I have a 1 1/2 year old male green cheek conure that I believe is showing signs of hormonal aggression towards one specific member of my household as well as outside visitors. When we first got him he was good with everyone for the most part, up until several months ago when what...

    Playing rough and nipping

    I need some help with my pineapple GC. We have had him for about 6 months and rescued him (from our backyard, no knowledge of previous owner or age/gender to be certain). From what the vet says and based on what he looked and acted like when we found him, he was most likely 5 months - 1 year...

    Conure Biting

    Hi all - I'm writing to see if anyone can help, because my green cheek conure is biting me, hard, and drawing blood regularly. It is getting to the point where I don't like him very much anymore. I'd like to (respectfully) preempt two lanes of advice I've read that are not applicable here...

    Aggressive Meyers Parrot

    I joined this forum to ask for some help with my Meyers parrot. I got him around 5 months ago from someone rehoming him. The lady told me he’s around 4 years old. I’m having issues with him being aggressive, and I believe it’s gotten worse since I’ve gotten him. He bites when anything makes him...

    I just got my first bird three days ago from a privately owned pet store. He's a cockatiel that's just over a year old and I named him Winston. He is an absolute sweetheart and took to me immediately. Within the first 10 minutes of me putting him in his flight cage, he was already eating and...

    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...

I'll be playing a game on my phone and he'll fly over to the finger im touching the screen with and start attacking it full on and it genuinely really hurts. I'm not sure if he's just really...

    Is there any way to stop this/establishing boundaries with bird

    I'm really not expecting any solution for this as it's only a mild annoyance and not anything super problematic. Ok so my bird will go on my keyboard and chew and peck around at it while I'm playing a game or watching something and will often go under my hand; then the situation happens as...
