    I second the idea of a bitter spray. Whatever else you do, it cannot hurt to have wires taste bad!

    hey gang I dont know what is up my loving cuddly 6 mo old sun conure has suddenly become very aggressive and mean. I hand fed him and he as always been like puddy in my hands. Do they go through mood swings?

    Well it could be hormones or he could be trying to assert his place in the pecking order. I also understand they may not like devices, phones, remotes,etc. Are you using anything when he starts acting up?

    Hard to make video when I am being bitten lol. I think I figured out the problem, she is going through her first molt and she had a mild clipping when I got her. The molt has caused her to lose some flight feathers and she cant fly which is making her in a very bad mood. I think she thinks I did something.

    Hopefully her mood will improve once she regains some of her ability?

    If you don't figure it out you might take her to a vet, just to make sure it isn't something like her being sick. I don't know why a parrot would change like that all of a sudden unless there was a reason. Not to scare you, but just a thought.

    If it's meant to be it'll be, if it ain't it won't... it's life, live with it.
