A true ANGRY BIRD
This is about Teak, my masked lovebird. I don't mean to sound like a downer, but I seriously feel like giving up. I've had Teak for 9 MONTHS and she makes absolutely NO PROGRESS. I've tried everything I know. But still every time I walk buy she hops to the other side and clings on for dear life until I'm completely out of sight. She's seriously UNRESPONSIVE to everything. The only thing I can do that's worked open the roof of the cage (She's afraid of the door), let her crawl out, I offer my hand to step up, she RUNS LIKE A CHICKEN WITH IT'S HEAD CUT OFF, I finally calm her down enough to step up, I put her on my shoulder, she relaxes alittle, but get this... SHE ONLY LIKES ME IF I'M PLAYING ANGRY BIRDS (And I have to have the sound on) If not, she tears into me. This is so weird and I don't understand it, but really, it's something I noticed. Then, she'll climb onto my head by herself and if I stop playing the game SHE RIPS MY HAIR OUT. For this one, I'm not sure if this is her way of preening or if she is ticked. When I can finally get her down off me, I try to gently place her back in her cage and she unacceptably darts for the cage. I know this is long, weird and alittle unnecessary, but this is the only way I can handle her. I don't know what to do with her. I swear, I'm really not trying to scare her but she's even worse in her cage. She's just out of control. Can someone please help me? This would be alot easier if she would just step up...
