Quaker Parrot attitude change.?
Category: Quaker Parrot Food
Our Quaker Parrot has developed an attitude change that is rather frustrating to me. Nothing has changed in his food or care at all. However one day he actually nipped at me and I then left him alone and then now he is becoming more and more aggressive and going to the floor of his cage and doing these repetitive motions with his body and head and doing this sequence of shrill sounds when we get near his cage. There are no kids in the house and he “was” before this mood change getting loads of attention and love but now I am hesitant to even put my hand near the cage because he charges it and when he latches on with his beak it hurts! I can do the food and water and cage cleaning without being bitten but now you cannot touch him or even show him affection unless it is on his terms. Does this species of bird have a mating season or time of year? Going from a loving bird who loves to cuddle to a mean attack bird is rather odd don’t you think? Please help!
