Say "hi" to Murphee for me, too!!
Guess what? I was a naughty boy today! Mom thinks I might be wanting to mate or something, because I'm not acting like myself at all. She was hoping maybe your mom could offer some advice if she has any, since she hasn't dealt with this in a bird before (other than what she's read in the birdie books).
This morning, when she came in to get me and get my vegetables ready (like she usually does), I had my beak open ready to attack, I puffed out my feathers, and I had my tail flared out, and I snapped at her. I even bit her finger through the cage, and then I sat back on my perch and laughed! Mom said that was really naught, because I made her finger bleed!
I was also screaming out (which I rarely do, unless I need food), and so she heard that I needed my room darker if this was hormonal and related to breeding/mating behavior. Once she closed the blinds in my room and covered the cage, I settled down and got quiet. She took the cover off a little later when it got darker outside naturally.
Tomorrow she is hoping I am a bit better after my day of "calming down", but any advice you can give to help Mom with my "temper tantrum" would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!
Leaving a vote!
