I tried to cut out a feeding, taking her down to two feedings but it made her super unhappy. She cried non-stop for hours even though she eats on her own and at feeding time she barely eats anything. She still cries just a couple hours after being fed but she's not little enough that I can justify feeding her every two hours. I looked it up online and they said to just keep feeding her until she doesn't want it or it'll give her little birdie aggression issues, so we're back to three feedings. She still cries between feedings but maybe not as bad. She spends lots of time outside her cage, other than feeding time. I don't pull away when she bites but I feel like I'm still teaching her to bite because I just let her do it. Even when I say no and make her step up, she just bites some more. Bringing in things that it's ok for her to chew on is a good idea. Do you really think she's challenging me? I hadn't really thought of that. She makes me feel like a bird novice, I've never had a bird with such an attitude and so young! Do you think she'll out grow it or do you think she'll always be the chewing on you type? Thanks for your help!
