"PLEASE HELP!!! I recently purchased an '8' year old citron cockatoo. And lets just say this bird hates me..I'm not being dramatic one bit..I have always adored all animals and wanted a bird since i was very little..So Kacey is my first bird..I've done all my research and I just don't understand what the problem is. Any male can go to Kacey, stranger or not, and pick him up, cuddle him, pet and touch him anywhere..He isn't bothered by any of it...which i've seen that birds are either partial to males or females? Don't know how true this i but i can understand that..But whats strange to me is Kacey has had a few different owners recently which were all homes with a husband and wife and children. But they all just said the women didn't really mess with him much..BUT the kicker is, his first and longest owner was a woman, who he apparently lived with for '10' years or so until she passed away...I just don't get why he would suddenly hate women? He will step up on my arm and sit with me but wont let me touch him with my free hand...but a total stranger, as long as its a man, can do whatever he wants to him..he will even lash out at me when I just quietly walk by his cage and he's sitting on top...Please give me your opinions on what i should do...I've tried sitting quietly just one on one but he wont come around...if he doesn't stop the lashing out i'll have t find him new home.."
