advice on behaviour
My IRN is just around 4 months . Hes incredibly tame and will come up to people to play or just hang out .
He has been going through a terrible phase for the past month or so . Hes developed a habit of lashing out every time hes asked to step up . The only time he doesn't bite is if you approach him exactly head on . Any kind of movement to either side of his head results in an attack. Its not just limited to fingers . His toys , food , even ears (if he is perched on a shoulder) aren't spared .
Apart from this hes a really sweet bird .He accepts food and treats from hands without issue . He goes back into his cage on command and loves sitting on my feet all day.
Is there any way to curb this behaviour ? I presume its some kind of weird insecurity . I haven't changed his cage setup or the location of his cage . Hes allowed at least 4 hrs out of the cage daily .
