Hi Floop #2549
How are u & ur magnificent flock doing? Since ur flock contains so many macaws, mom & I come to u today seeking advice. I am a second home bird, recently turned 17, & have been with my mom for 16 yrs now. I have recently become very hormonal. On the 20th, I viciously attacked my sweet mom twice & injured her badly. I'll give u info I feel may be pertinent, but please ask me anything u feel might aid us in our dilemma.

I have a very close & loving bond with my mom. I am an only bird, but besides mom & me , there are 2 dogs & 3 cats, none of which ever bother me, they stay clear of my beak. I get tons of mommy & me time & am very affectionate to mom. I'm almost always loose except when mom isn't home or if kids are here & she's not able to keep both eyes on me at all times. I love kids & want to be around them. Mom knows that I would never INTENTIONALLY hurt a child, but things happen...mom realizes that a frightened child waiving their arms around frantically, trying to get a large bird to go away, could accidentally receive a bad bite. I am mom's first bird, but she did years & years of research. She knew since she was 12 that she would someday share her life with a macaw. She entered into our relationship with both eyes wide open.

Back when I was 4 or 5, mom consulted an avian behaviorist. She made 2 visits to our home. I was giving her some nasty bites, broken fingers & stitches on one occasion. Mom hired the behaviorist coz failure was not an option, she wanted to get to the bottom of this coz she would NEVER re-home me, nor ever lock me away in a cage 24/7...she would never do that to me. She knew that whatever was happening, had to do with something she was doing/not doing...which was the case. Mom found out I was not getting enough total darkness each night, which was remedied immediately, & also, the bites were occurring because since I view mom as my mate, I was giving her some nasty, flesh-removing bites to get her away from what I perceived as danger. Everything had been wonderful until the 20th.

I will be back a little later to finish this story, mom is currently needed. I should be back in the next few hours. Thank you my friend!
Hugs
Tia
