Hi I'm Jo & I've joined this forum as I desperately need help with my parrot.
He's a black-headed caique called Jaffa, he's 2yrs & 2mths old. I got him last New Year's Eve, he bit his last owner really hard on the face so she gave him to me.
I've had no problems with him at all until 2 months ago. I got him out & all of a sudden he flew at me & viciously bit my hand so hard he drew blood. I told him no & put him back in his cage. Since then the attacks are every time I get him out. I put a UV light on him which made him worse, he then started biting my face every time I got him out.
I took him to my vets yesterday & he had a hormone implant put in, which will probably take a week to work & it might not do anything.
I just want my lovely, friendly, comical little parrot back
