Hello, I own a 5 months old sun conure. However, I have som problems with her.
First of all, sorry for my bad english, I am not from an english speaking country
She has successfully learnt the step-up / so she does it with no problem even without command. But when I try to pet her or anything related with touching her, she is biting. Really hard. I am a bit confused because when I get her off the cage, she seems excited and has no problems climbing my hand or with step-up as I said before. Any ideas how can I stop the biting?
When we got her home (a month ago) she seemed ok but from the day after I noticed that she flaps her wings. Not the way like she wanted to fly, but different. She always flaps just one of her wings, probably like every 2 seconds, sometimes more often, sometimes she doesnt do it for half an hour. She mostly flaps just her left wing, but its like 3 times left wing and 1 time right wing. So in a ratio 3:1. I have no idea what that means.
She sometimes has thrusts. I will try my best to explain that. So for example she is out of the cage, I play with her and suddenly she does a movement with her head similar to when you step on a dogs tail. That kind of short wiggle with her head, it looks like something has hurt her pretty bad, but I never hurt her on anything. She does that with an open beak, however she doesnt make any sound. And then she starts being really aggressive. She is fast, and bites everything. My fingers, ears, hands, everything as hard as she can. I also have no idea how to stop that, but I have a feeling that it is related to the problem one.
