Conure Behavior Problems?
I have a Dusky Conure... Though Dusky and Green-Cheek Conures are supposedly the quietest of Conure breeds, my Dusky Conure, Jazz, screams nearly all morning! Each morning, I go in and uncover his shut within. He seems fine. I open his cage to confer him fresh food and water? He's fine. So, I sit and talk to him. I pet his tail, whistle, and whisper, but when I stand, he starts nouns around. When I walk out of the room, he screams. I don't mean, "Chirp chirp," I tight-fisted SCREAMS. One of our neighbors came by to ask if we were okay! For such a small bird, it have a VOICE. Every time I walk back in, however, he shuts up, sits on his perch, puffs himself up, and cocks his manager. Why is he screaming?? What can I do to calm him down?0.o
Another problem is his biting. It HURTS! When I open his cage to permit him roam around, if you get too close or try to reach something by his, he snaps! He scream, then lunges toward your hand to bite. He usually draws blood. I hope to capture him to when you can pick him up, pet him, rub his belly, put him down... You get it. ^_^
All in adjectives, my bird has some behavior issues to work out. PLEASE HELP! T-T
