A guide to solving behavioral problems in companion parrots! You can leave the room and your bird starts screaming. You reach in to have your bird step up into your hand and instead your bird bites your hand. Your parrot likes one person in the house. You may be the one who cleans the cage, feeds the bird, ect. However your bird, for no apparent reason, will do anything for someone else in the house hold, but not you. Your bird has spent almost his whole life inside of his cage. He is now deathly afraid to come out. Your bird has taken preening to a whole new level. Rather than taking care of his feathers, your bird destroys feather, leaving bare patches of skin.
