Spike is starting to get temper tantrums, he will squak and look really grumpy and he will lift his one foot up and down. If you put your hand near him he will fake bite you alot :eek:. Is this part of the terrible teens? He is five months old now. What else should I expect during the terrible teens. Thanks for the info.

Yup, pretty much. Baby was like that for a while- she got real moody at times. I don't know about boys that much since I just got my first one but Baby is 3 and a half so I went through alot with her. The fake bite thing still happens but if u ignore it and don't move ur hand away he'll slow down a little.

Ahhh, hormonal boys are so fun. :p The best thing you can do is ignore the naughty behaviour and wait for him to snap out of the phase.

Not in the human world there not! I don't know about the birdy world. LOL.
In the bird world they are :p Georgie can be grumpy and likes to be by herself on or near her cage and she comes to us when SHE feels like it, but she is not a biter, now Ollie is a big sucky and always wants the attention he is sweet and loving but man one minute he is sitting nice and I can move my finger just a wee bit and he attacks with record speed...hehe I agree with Bea when she talks about Bailee taking up so much of her time Ollie is the same way I can't get away from him for a minute I can't even hide anymore he finds me, boys are such attention hogs :p
