My male Amazon parrot who I’ve had for 30 years goes out of his way to attack my wife but not myself even though I grab him with gloved hands when he misbehaves.
My wife provides him only kindness.
Can you tell me why he does this and how I can correct it?
Do you sell training clickers and training treats for him?
Also, he has a Prevue cage but the bottom tray is rusting out and I need to replace it.
The rest of the cage is fine. Do you know where I can purchase a bottom tray?
That’s typical jealousy behavior for an amazon.
Light therapy can be effective for negative hormonal behavior.
Gloved hands can stress birds.
The bird of time: cognition and the avian biological clock
Try using a perch or broom which is more natural for the bird the “friendly stick”.
Use this video as a guide for clicker training

Andrew Hollingworth states:
I don’t really want to ask things.
I just wanted to say how adorable my budgies are!
If anyone out there needs answers I may have them.
Budgies are social, so I recommend having more than one in the cage.
