Pita the Green Cheek Conure

Pita started off very friendly and lovable and I spent a lot of time with him. However, the older he got the more it seemed his mission in life was to draw blood on me and my husband. He especially liked attacking toes. We tried everything we knew to break him of his biting, but nothing worked. His favorite thing was to bite us, then say, "HEY! No biting!" Guess where he learned that? We finally had to find him a new home, where, apparently he turned into a bird sent from Heaven. I guess we were bad bird parents. I'd had other species of birds before so he wasn't my first bird, but overall it wasn't a good experience. He was beautifully marked and learned words easily, but even our pet sitter commented she'd never seen such an aggressive Conure.
