Is he happy or being aggressive?
My parents have an amazon parrot that i have posted everywhere because they just can't take care of him. He is aggressive, chews up everything, and my parents won't take him out of the cage (or let me). Of course he is miserable. I've posted him online asking for a loving family who can give him attention. In the mean time i'm staying with my parents for the next month or two and want to at least try to get him less aggressive towards people.
I also have a very shy budgie who is afraid of people (bad experience with a bad roommate of mine.)
So i have one bird who i can't take out of his cage because he was hurting people, and another who won't come out because its to scared. Their cages are in the same room so i figure i should sit near them and at least give them attention.
I've been playing music a lot for them while i sit and do some work. I just can't tell if the parrot hates it or is glad to be getting attention. He gets all puffed up, and pins his eyes a lot. I am not sure if that is mildly aggressive, or if he is just excited. He doesn't put his tale out put his head forward which he does when he is warning he is going to attack. Anyone have any clue?
Or any idea what i can do to make him hate people less?
