Post: Dudley - Bitting Amazon - 19 yrs old/Jackie

    I have a 19 yr old yellow nape who is spoiled rotten. He
    has a Huge cage and playpen-he has never been locked in
    since I got him when he was 3 months old.

    He is well fed and I play with him a couple of hours a day
    or he sleeps on my shoulder.

    In the last 2 months he has sent me to the hospital twice.
    He lunges at my face and bit me on my temple, 5 stitches in
    my ear, and bit my lower lip from outside to inside.

    In 18 years I have never - not ever - been bitten once!

    The first and second time he was on my shoulder when the
    phone rang and as I got up to get it he freaked out. Mad
    at me because he knew he was not getting my full
    attention. That is my best guess. Now he lunges at my
    face all the time and now must be locked in cage.

    I think I was giving him too much attention? I have a 130
    lb. German Shepheard and Dudley chases him around the coffe
    table, which I have to admit is very funny.

    I need help! If I can't fix this I will have to sell him
    which terrifies me that he would end up being abused or/and
    ignored.

    Please help me and Dudley!
