Sorry for the cross post..but need help ..
ok .. let me tell you, MALE hormones... seriously you think the girls are bad. I need MAJOR intervention here. i have removed anything sweetie could POSSIBLY think of as a nest. taken the cage into a different room so that he doesnt get territorial around it. so he had a playgym and his travel box out which he plays in. but nothing is working...
over the last 2 weeks or so Sweetie has turned into a terrorist.. seriously.. at this point in time i am sporting a hand, that sweetie cannot even perch on due to the bruising and bites.. my entire hand has been "chowed" on in efforts to get him to UP.. he is at the point where he attacks anyone coming near him. and i have no idea why,
so i need to start from scratch as this cannot go on. I understand the trauma of a new bird, which he can hear but not see, and have giving him extra time and cuddling , which i can only do at this point, holding him in his fav cloth.. the entire family is sporting bleeding and bruised feet <his cage is on the floor next to my couch> and my father is loosing patience FAST. Sweetie's quest for dark spots are beginning to get a bit much, including under the couch and behind cushions...
ive cut back on high fat foods etc, and i need to start converting him to pellets soon, but cannot do that while he is like this.. soooo
ANYTHING i can try.. basic training ideas? the biting has to be cut back. i can simply not handle the extent that he is attacking me. and i dont WANT to restrict his out time.
at this moment he is in his cage for a time out, the 4th in the last hour. screaming his head off. when i take him out, he will be all lovey for about 10/20 mins.. then go straight back to biting.. and the biting, involves latching on and not releasing.
so someone please help.
