Tia back with pt 2
Mom remembered the blog u sent us when we first joined BC. Mom went back to the first page of our blogs. U so kindly shared how u were giving ur mom some nasty bites. I figured u & ur flock, ur sweet mom specifically, knowing first hand what we are going thru.

On the 20th, everything started out normally. I had been up for about 3 hrs & mom was sitting on the couch holding me. I was cuddling against her, giving kisses & saying "love you". I started leaning towards the arm of the couch, I like to climb down behind the couch. After a few attempts with mom keeping turning me away from the couch, it seemed I gave up on my mission. A few minutes later, still happily chattering & talking, with absolutely no change in my body language, I lunged & grabbed mom's thumb. She held her hand down to the floor & had to shake me off, careful not to injure me in the process. When I finally let go, she threw a blanket over me to get me back into my cage. I was laughing & squealing as this was a fun game. I was left in my cage for about 4 hrs to calm down. Mom brought me back out & I was sweet & loving. 1/2 hr after sitting on her hand, I was wiping my beak on her shirt, then viciously clamped down on her shoulder & wouldn't let go. Mom had to offer up her injured hand to get me off her shoulder. I did step up but sliced up 2 more fingers & a chunk out of her upper arm. Once back on the floor, mom grabbed the blanket again. This time I wasn't playing. I was lunging & snapping & making this growling sound mom never has heard me do before. She finally got me into my cage & I kept trying to grab her thru the bars, which I never do. I spent the rest of the day & night covered. The next morning, it was as if nothing ever happened. Mom reached in & got me out & I was shaking with excitement as usual. Nothing has happened since, but mom is keeping a close watchful eye on me. On the occasions I've bit mom before, there had always been changes in my body language but not on the 20. Mom never saw it coming. Mom racked & racked her brain trying to figure out what caused this, she knows it has to be hormonal. Every time mom would hold me, I desperately tried to get behind the couch but she wouldn't let me. She'd put me down at the slightest sign of agitation. Mom moved the couch yesterday. To her shock, she found I have been building a big, beautiful nest. Mom kept some cardboard boxes there with sisters & sweeper attachments. The boxes were gone, only a big pile of pieces of cardboard. I had never shown an interest in building a nest before.

Mom figures that me being hormonal & her preventing me from getting to my nest is what provoked these attacks. After it was all cleaned up, mom brought me over & showed me. Behind the couch is now completely off limits, but I still really, really want to go back there. My poor mom cried for 2 days. Not because of the injuries, but because of unrecognizable change of her sweet, beloved baby girl & it broke her heart. Mom got me out
