Sorry to hijack this thread but I have a similar problem with my CAG Louie. He is around 2 years old and hates me but loves my hubby :? He has a large cage and paystand and plenty of toys both inside and outside of his cage and a couple of java branches. The toys vary between rope and wood things, rope swings, acrylic, bells, toys to work at to find the treat and a kong. He amuses himself quite happily and I change the toys around not only removing and adding toys but also changing the position. :wink:
However, poor Louie is clearly frightened of me - he puffs his feathers out and tries to bite me whenever I go near the cage (although at first he sreamed too - this has stopped). We deciede that I would be Louie's 'carer', I feed him, change his water, alternate his toys, let him out in the morning, talk to him as much as I can but don't put him to bed (hubby does that). Is this the right thing to do?
What else can I do to help Louie less frightened? When I am at home with him during the day he remains silent except for if the phone rings, he rarely calls me if I leave the room BUT as soon as my daughter or hubby comes home he's all chat - he has a long list of things he can say and other animal noises he can make.
I don't know much about his previous owner or about the way he was reared :cry:
Help poor Louie please.
Sorry it was so long
