    How To Judge Your Parrot's Mood

    Parrots can be extremely amiable and loving pets. However, just like us humans, from time to time they need to be left alone. But this can be hard for their owners to tell – resulting in them getting bitten! So what are the signs that your parrot is in a bad mood and wants to be left alone?

     If your bird is feeling hostile, it will usually puff itself up. This is a surefire sign that it is in a confrontational mood, and it’s eyes will usually flash too. The birds feathers will stand up and it will dip its head – typical in an agitated state. In this case, rather than sticking your finger in the parrot’s cage, calm it down with a soothing voice. In no time your parrot should be calm – unless it has deeper-seated behavioural problems, in which case you should ask your vet, or consult another one of our articles to find out why.
