I have a five year old Peach Faced Lovebird. If your read my other post there is some background on her. Lately she is not letting me in her cage.:( When I try to feed her she attacks me same if I change her water too. :mad:If i rearrange her cage though she does not seem to get to upset about that.:confused: I feed her daily talk to her give her clean water, clean her cage daily, leave her door open so she can come out, and she wont come out of her cage.:confused: When Im not home i leave music on for her. And i have also gotten her off of her seed diet, but she isnt taking to fresh foods to well. Last night i made spaghetti and gave her some pasta only, she wouldnt eat it. She bites the holy crap out of me anytime.:eek: Any suggestions?:shrug:
I am also thinking of getting anouther bird any idea's. Im not putting the new bird in the same cage as holly though no way!:yikes:

It sounds like she's very unhappy. Have you tried bonding with her? Sing to her, talk softly, whistle whatever. Also have you monitored what she is eating? You might think that no seed is the answer but it should be done slowly by decreasing the amount of seed every other day. You could also try eating something before you offer it to her... you don't actually have to eat it but make it convincing.
I wouldn't consider another bird until she settles down.
Also you could attempt to bribe her out of the cage with something she likes... like seeds :)
Does she have pellets available at all times?

Talks sweet, offer treats. Try perch training her in the cage. Teach her up or step up or whatever command you'll stick with. I used to breed lovebirds, they can be little meanies. LOL Not all but most of them...even handfed ones but they are so beautiful!!!
