Hi, I'm pretty desperate for suggestions at the moment. About 3-4 years ago i got a young ring-neck dove. He was fully feathered but he was a fledgling of that year. He was really socialised with the breeder, and quickly got used to me. He became really tame, and i used to let him have the run of my room almost every day. We used to have a great relationship. He had perches in my room for him to doze on and when he'd wake up and want company he used to fly down to my desk and get all curious as to what i was doing, eventually falling asleep again on my hand while i was writing! He used to fluff up and close his eyes to my cuddling. And was perfectly happy with anything i did. I could even clip his wings without holding him down! He'd just sit on my finger and watch me!! And now i can't get near him!! because he's become completely aggressive and terretorial. I haven't let him out of his cage in over a year, because all he does is display, get in my way and bite me whenever my hand goes near him!! I've tried ignoring the behavior. I've tried flicking him on the beak when he bites. Nothing works. One day he just started getting really territorial and when i'd go move him from somewhere he shouldn't be perched he'd immdeiately fly back and display, and get pretty angry at me when i insisted he couldn't sit there. Once he started, it was like he couldn't stop. He's decided that i'm the enemy and thats that! I can't even change his food without him getting territorial and fighting me!! I've pretty much given up hope to get him tame again. The problem now is that cooped up on his own he's going out of his mind. He's constantly cooing and displaying to any bird that lands near his cage and courts absolutely anything that comes within his site. From birds to leaves blowing in the wind!! I can only assume that his hormones have driven him into being this way. ANd if thats the case then the only way to calm him down would be a mate. I bought a new cage, intending in getting him a mate. But i don't have the room to let them breed. Can i somehow stop them from breeding? Does anyone have any idea what i can do??
