hi guys.. seems like my tiel lost some trust or something..he was fully tame and happy but now for some reason he opens his beak when my hand gets close to him... reminds me of the time i first got him.. a bit skittish.. he still loves scraches and eats out of my hand.. but why is he opening his beak?
thanx :)

I'd say it is cause of the moult. My cockatiel, Solo, gets like that- cause he doesnt want me touching all his pin feathers. He will get nicer again when he is done moulting!

He also could be going through the hormonal teenage stage. Is he on the long nights treatment? If not, it might help calm him down if you start him on it. You'll get your sweet baby back soon enough!:)
