Hi everyone

Iíve recently re-homed a CAG who is 17 years old because she was plucking her chest feathers. I believe the plucking was due to bereavement as her previous owner had died.

She has fallen in love with my father which Iím over the moon with because her feathers are coming through.

The only thing is, sheís begun to get a bit aggressive with me, Iím so sad . Iíve took a step back to give her some space which seems to help a little. Iíve taken over feeding duty as itís the best mood to catch her in and I can give her, her faves. I havenít tried scratching her head for a while because I hate it when she goes for me.

Any advise would be gratefully received.

Thank you

Hi Leanne
Congrats on your new family addition :)
Iím afraid to say almost all greys are one person birds or at least one gender birds
So this will mean if your dad is the chosen one then you will most likely get bitten from time to time
I have 2 that chose my fella and these 2 I hve to pick up on a buddy perch as I will get bitten .
It doesnít stop me from enjoying them though :)
Just concentrate on doin the good things
Like feeding and letting her out
Get your dad to put her back away (a not so nice thing)
You never know she may learn to like you
Good luck and keep us posted x x x

they are such complex little creatures. My girl adores me and I can do anything with her but when my husband is home I can see the interest she has in him, as soon as he speaks she copies him.

He's scared of her though cos he's a woosy :D

just keep being the main care giver, as Mandi says they tend to favour one person but you never know.
