Ok, I have a 6 year old sun conure named Pyro. My ex fiance bought him for me he was very attached to me for a long time. He actually ended up liking me more than my ex fiance and always wanted to sit on me and love on me. Well as of last year my fiance and I went our seperate ways and I got Pyro because he loved me so much, shoot hes like my kid! so anyways I started dating a new guy not too long ago and pyro took to him instantly. He wasnt territorial about me like I thought he was. We just recently moved in together. Now its just the opposite as it was before with my ex and I he loves my boyfriend to death and if hes around Pyro doesnt want anything to do with me he just wants to be with my boyfriend. If we are all sitting on the couch for example and I try to give my bf a kiss or snuggle with his face Pyro gets really aggressive and nips at us until we seperate. he wants to be right in between us and doesnt want us to show any affection to each other at all. When my bf walks over to the cage to pick him up or really just pick him up at all he fluffs all up (especially his head) and rubs his beak on the ground. I thought at first maybe he was going to be aggressive but hes not towards my bf most of the time. He goes down in our shirts and sits on the collar and there are times when he gets aggressive towards Dale. But he is really attached to him and always wants him to hold him. I guess im a little confused as to why he gets agressive with him sometimes. I was hoping that someone could shed some light on this for me. Thanks!
He's deffinatly bonded to your new beau. I would sugest you have seperate one on one time with Pyro, with your BF no where to be found. When you and your BF are together on the sofa, have a T-stand in front of you both on the sofa. Have him with you, if he gets agressive towards you, remove him to the stand and let him know his behaviour is not acceptable. Also keep him off your shoulder, they get too big for their brirches up there ! Always reward the good behaviours.
