"I need help dealing with a biter. My boyfriend has had a lessor sulphur crested cockatoo for 15 years or so. She's about 20 now. She is very bonded with him. And very jealous. For the first year I knew her she screamed if I went near him. I've lived with her for 2 years now. She's let me pet her through the cage and give her treats. And she usually doesn't scream when I touch him now. But sometimes when I pet her she tries to bite me. She got me once. Ouch. When I walk by her cage she'll reach out and grab me with her foot or her beak. But I've been careful not to get angry. And the book I have on her suggested not pulling my hand away, which is scary. I'd like to be able to handle her or open her cage without fear of being attacked. I'm always worried she'll need something or something we'll be wrong and he won't be home. She does have a history of flying at other women. Is there anyway to get her to trust me?"
