Bonding with boyfriend and not me

1969 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  xxxSpikexxx
I am feeling a little jealous because my boyfriend has been training my bird and spending a lot of time with my bird and my bird has started to bond with him more than me. His response to my boyfriend is more welcoming and his response to me is less warm. Is it possible that a new bird can be equally bonded to two people? I have read that only one person should be training the bird in the beginning, but we also didn't want the bird mating to one person...:confused:

My Gracie came to me after living with a single male for 2 years...lets just say that she greatly prefers my dad and brother (and any other person or place) to me. But i persistently work with her and she is gradually warming up to me...a little. :p You're in a better situation though, because you can increase the time you're interacting with your tiel before it's completely bonded to your boyfriend over you. :)
