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?


Answer:

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,

Brenda
