I'm new on this forum so I will introduce my budgie named Tiny first. I bought him from a pet story 3 months ago. He was aggressive and not tame at all. He's a good biter and he bit me until I was bleeding. I didn't know what to do and a lot of times I almost gave up on him. But suddenly he changed and he now he is the sweetest. He loves sitting under my hand and LOVES head scratches. I give them for like 7 times a day or something and maybe more idk. Now we're so close and he loves me. He nibbles my face and my hand and he has never bitten me again. His wings are trimmed but I can't wait until his wings are grown back. But he is acting strange lately. He is molting and I he is hormonal (I think)and maybe that's the reason but I don't know for sure. He is running around and is very hyper and restless. He is also squawking a lot. He wants to be with me all the time, but he also wants to play with his toys. I have no idea what he wants. He is jumping around, running, screaming and squawking. When he's quiet and I start talking he begins to squawk and runs to me and jumps on my hand and continues squawking. He has mood swings all the time and I have no idea what he wants or how he feels. Oh and he is pretty aggressive towards his toys. He makes that dolphin noise towards them and then he walks away. He is still doing the things he always does. What does this mean? And is squawking a good thing or bad thing?
