Oh now, funny you should say that..........he's had me in tears this morning! I was cleaning him out and rearranging his cage for him, he launched himself at me and bit chunks out of my hand! He really hurt and when I spoke to him quietly and tried to calm him down, he did it again. The outcome is, I couldn't get near him, he was being really horrible. I put his new food etc in his cage and he went in on his own, then I shut him in. I really don't want Dooby to be a nasty bird because I love him to bits. I can't just hold my hand out for him to bite either, he hurts too much. I just don't know what to do with him at the moment, now he's in his cage talking and singing as though nothing has happened, but I'm a bit scared now to put my hand near him. Do you thik this is one of the mood swings, or has turning into a "big boy" really made him turn into a nasty boy?
