Handling Hormonal Horrors: Feathered Frenzy

Hormones. One word that strikes fear into the heart (and fingers) of many a parront. Our feathered companions are, like humans, governed by fluctuating and often irreconcilable hormones that wreak havoc on their behavior – and often, ours. Living in human households produces many good, and some not so good, birdie behavior. This is especially true when our sweet feathered companion turs into a little T-Rex, taking every advantage possible to attack fingers rather than cuddle or play.

In her February ’21 edition of Feathered Frenzy, Sherri provides a wealth of great tips and resources to help us parronts live, and keep our fingers relatively intact, during our fids’ hormonal rages.
