Two days ago my cockatiel perched on me and cuddled my ear. Last two days he ignores me. Why,?
Birds are not always in the mood to be handled. I do caution against letting your bird cuddle. This can be a hormone trigger and can lead to behavior issues like aggression. It’s best to hold your bird on your hand or let him sit on a play stand. Limit any petting to the head and neck. Birds do molt and this can make them cranky when they are growing new feathers.
Thank you for Asking Lafeber,
