Hi all - so I guess I have to admit defeat and write this post. Peanut is approx. 8 months and was the tamest, sweetest boy...that is until recently. Lately he has been giving me a hard time to get back in his cage at night and he started "nipping" at my hand when I would tell him to step up to place him back in his cage. At the time I summed it up to his molting. As of late, it has gotten to the point that he lunges at me with an open beak when I show him my hand and tell him to step up. He is now biting hard and has drawn blood a few times. I try to keep cool and calm, but it's getting hard to remain patient. It has now gotten to the point that as soon as he comes out of his cage, it becomes a fiasco to get him back in...literally it takes a minimum of 15-20 min. This of course doesn't work when I'm trying to get out the door and to work ?. I'm puzzled as to the sudden, increasing aggression as nothing has changed in Peanuts routine or environment. I'd like to see Peanut revert back to his nice self, and thus ask for advice and recommendations on altering his current behavior. Thanks!
