green neck parrot biting


So i bought 2 ring neck green parrot their age were about 20 days, since then i fed them and everything, it’s been 4 months one of the parrot died and i am left with only one now. At first it never attacked me and when i called him it always replied back. The problem started when i had to leave my house for 20 days and i had to leave my parrot with my aunt and uncle. When i came back he had already learned whistling which my aunt said that uncle trained him to do that. When i brought him home he is biting everything including my hand and is scared of everything, he was replying to me at my uncles house but not anymore, he is always quite and scared. What should i do please help ( it’s been 1 week since he is acting like that)


Answer:

Hi Tashfain,

It sounds like he really bonded with your Uncle and enjoyed their household. Maybe your house is too quiet or too loud? Think of any differences that might be the problem. He is also probably mad at you for leaving him. He should forgive you soon and his behavior will return to normal. Meanwhile, ask your aunt and uncle about their routine with him to try to find out why he seemed to prefer their home.

Thank you for Asking Lafeber,
