    Re: She hates me now

    putting your birds together probably triggered a hormonal period in your hen, which will not only make her want to mate/lay eggs but will also make her very territorial and generally cranky.
    Are you planning to breed these birds? are they old enough (at the very least a year and half to two years old)? if you are not prepared to have them go through breeding right now, you should limit the hours of daylight the pair is getting (cover the cage early in the evening and un-cover later in the morning), and change all the perches and toys around in the cage - hopefully this will help bring the hen out of "breeding mode" and back to her regular self

    my tamest tiel used to sit in a nest box and chirp happily and i would open the lid and he would continue chirping.


    But then i bought him a mate!!!

    Now before i even get to the nest box he'll come out and attack my face!!

    ( and he was my tamest bird! )


    So it must be a hormonal thing

    The best thing you can do is to wait until the mating season (summer) is finished and just for short periods of time let him out but the new one (ONLY FOR SHORT PERIODS OF TIME)
    and cover the cage, jus to spend a bit of time.
