Mango!!! Owww!!!

Had Mango out, just chilling... he took ahold of my upper lip and would NOT let go!! My eyebrows raised, my bottom lip dropped open...Wow!! I certainly got the answer to my age old question of what a conure bite would feel like! When a parrotlet bites you, it's like being squeezed with a pair of tweezers with sharp needles on the ends. When a conure takes hold, it's like being squeezed with a pair of pliers with sharp needles on the ends. He didn't even draw blood... it was just a "grab-on". My goodness. Welcome, "terrible 2's."

OUCHY OUCH! They get unpredictable, don't they? I can't imagine what that would feel like! I'll bet you were worried that he took a chunk off of your upper lip! Thank God he didn't pull down real hard or you wouldn't be able to give anybody any lip! (excuse the pun) .
Be careful!

I'm really fortunate to have a hand-fed baby boy. This will get bad, as his hormones start to surge... but, not as bad as it would be if he was "wild." I plan to keep taking him out of his cage every day, no matter the cost to my lips. fingers, etc... don't want to lose that bond. Kiwi was a pretty wild parrotlet... when I first got her. Blood drawn daily. She, eventually settled down... probably AFTER her terrible 2's. Mango will do the same... just a rough patch.

It's hormonal time for Oliver, too. Certainly Mango will settle in soon.

Yikes! Nichi (conure) got my lip once but a) I deserved it and b) she didn't hold on.

Sorry, that sounds painful.
