Timneh behavior

I have 2 timnehs—one is territorial in the kitchen (on the floor), and attacks the other when she comes near. What’s going on?


Thank you for attending our webinar by Lisa Bono. Below is Lisa’s response:

Hi Deborah,

Sounds like there are some hormones flying around and timmie one is looking to make a nest and timmie two is interfering in number one’s mind. I would suggest keeping them up off the floor and give them something else to do so number one has other things on his/her mind. We don’t want to encourage egg laying and possible issues down the road.

Hi Deborah,

We recently hosted a 2 part webinar on hormonal pet birds. I will post the info below so that you can access the video – I would highly recommend that you watch both webinars.

Webinar: “Spring Is In the Air: How To Deal With Your Pet Bird’s Hormonal Behavior!”

Webinar: “Pet Birds & Hormonal Behavior: Part 2!”

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
