she's suddenly really aggressive

Postby voguemamselle619 » Sat Aug 09, 2008 10:49 pm

she won't let me touch her. she goes to attack and does the war dance. she's broken the skin a couple times now. she'll take treats from me, but she won't let me approach her. she's just staying in her cage all the time, and doesn't want me entering it. i don't know why she's acting like this! she had been really good for a while, and would let me pet her. it's like she possessed. it started a couple weeks ago, but has gotten progressively worse. why is she acting like this?? :(

Perhaps she's hormonal?

Try taking her into the bathroom like you do new flyers in the bonding process. As far as hormones, when they go into heat and don't breed, they go back into heat repeatedly during the breeding periods: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=6581&p=57145&hilit=estrus#p57145

i guess i'll try doing the bathroom thing. she has seriously turned devilish. i think she gets it from her momma joan (if you remember tom telling you about the vicious momma!) you'd think she had a litter of pups in her nest box the way she has been acting. fortunately, that is impossible, and with the way she's acting, it will NEVER happen.

ok everyone, she's back to normal just as fast as she was evil! when should i expect this to happen again??? i know it's twice a year, but i'm not clear on what times of the year to expect it. i was really worried there for a bit that she'd never turn back to normal!

[quote="voguemamselle619"]ok everyone, she's back to normal just as fast as she was evil!

Well, that's a relief!

when should i expect this to happen again??? i know it's twice a year, but i'm not clear on what times of the year to expect it.

Usually Spring and Fall.

i was really worried there for a bit that she'd never turn back to normal!

I bet!

how long is this going to happen? is this hormones or is she turning totally wild? :?:
