Hello, Ive had this happen for quite some time now. When I first got her, she was very nice and I taught tweety how to step up and sang for her everyday, etc. Then couple months ago whenever I would put her swing in her cage at night she would try to peck me. I thought it was the swing--but even when I put my hand in there (when its sundown) she lunges at me. Well fast forward to October, we have a new baby budgie in another cage-"TJ"(for 3 months now). I expected tweety to bond more with TJ naturally and I saw how soon those girls became friends. To make a long story short the pecks have gotten harder and I have no clue what is wrong with her. During the day, she plays and try to bite my nails--but other than when I tell her to step up--she does it, but jumps off very quickly. Ive bought her shredder toys, give her veggies on a daily basis an also bathes--which she loves. What am I doing wrong?
I am still hunting for a bigger cage to maybe house both birds, but I am afraid tweety may try to peck at TJ.
p.s. Anyone have recommendations for a quality bird cage dealor that ships worldwide? I've tried ebay but STILL cant get through and/or the shipping rate will be over the price of the cage itself.
