Why Melody, why?

Melody but me today ON THE FACE because I had the nerve to take a drink of water. she latched onto the fleshy part of my jaw and I'm not kidding was hanging from my face, she left a top beak puncture and two little curved lower beak puncture. I was so so mad at her. I do not understand why she has to be so vicious, and her wings are back now to, she's been very nasty a couple times. Three times this week I used my sleeves to cover my hands and scoop her up and plop her naughty little bird butt right back in the cage. I love her more than the other parrotlet but sometimes she really gets me boiling. She's always been like this and at this point I just feel so helpless. She's like a 30g pit bull that latches on and won't let go.

Ouch. Tumi is also a jerk pretty often. It isn't fun.

Yes it just breaks my heart when she can't fly. I like her to get the exercise and i cringe whenever she hits the floor, she never seems to glide well. Hopefully it's just a super grumpy molt or something.

Ouch! Levi lunges at me when I get him too riled up during play time. Even when we're done playing and I think he's calmed down he'll randomly run up to me and bite me.. his favourite place to bite is my nostrils. Ugh.

I can relate, Huey kind of plops down. Now he kind of floats down, then he starts his jogging/jumping routine. I think that counts as excercise.

Sorry to read about grumpy Melody. Perhaps she can join Ollie in her grumpy ways. He has been more aggressive than normal. Perhaps it's hormones or pinni feathers that make them ornery than normal.
You are not the only one. Patience...

Gee, Melody sounds like a nippy little diva...ouch!

Umm...Naomi (my ridgeback/pit mix) wants me to comment that many pits are very sweet and nice, and don't bite anyone...unlike Melody.

I can't even imagine the pain!

Hopefully all of these grumpy parrotlets don't have the grumps that often!

Fifer could be like that. Everything would seem fine and then she would beeline and bite my ear.

Thankfully Kingston doesn't seem to get grumpy. But he's also not as bonded to us.

I'm sorry Naomi, I know your the sweetest because your daddy says so. How about I compair her to a snapping turtle, or a parahna? Or you can come show her how to be nice. Lol
For the record I still have a mark. Grrrrr....
