More then a week ago i got a lovebird and called him kermit. Because im still busy i got him a friend yesterday and a few hiurs after when i come near the cage he bites me or starts to be aggressive how do i have him stop and rebond with him?
Should i get them seperared again?Hi Celery, are they in the same cage, or separate?
@Zara has multiple and may have some words of wisdom.
In general, if you only had Kermit for a week, any bond is still forming and delicate, so significant changes can disrupt that.
Spending less time together, having the daily schedule changed, the addition of a new bird (especially if placed in the same cage), will all cause stress, and a stressed bird is a defensive bird. If you were having success bonding with Kermit before the new bird was added, consider what changes can be reversed.
He was never cage aggresive he would happily get out and sleep in my shoulder, palm of my hands or on my belly. Only where he gets mad was when i was working on my school projects and tried to touch my mouseHas he always been cage aggressive? Can you get him away from the cage to interact with him?

I see, i got a pic how they are together. They follow eachother everywhere this is what they do when they are together. I got 2 cages and i let them out of tje cage at a bit of time where i can surveillance them so they dont fight.Oh I will say something else..
So my dog found my eldest Hen at my back door, and I had to quarantine her in my kitchen (not ideal but I had no choice). She was there for a month or a little more and I could handle her, she wasn´t keen on hands but things were ok.
As soon as I introduced her to my two boys, she bonded to one instantly and when they went to live together, she changed, and was much more ¨aggressive¨ and protective over her cage, the things I could do before, I couldn´t any more.
