PostSubject: Pleae help..Poppy is attacking my Son   Tue Aug 11, 2009 5:05 am

I'm in tears writing this and desperate for some advice off the other forum members as I don't know what to do..

You all know Poppy was plucking for a long time and we managed to cure the condition..

Now
she has taken to attacking my son. I have no idea why. Adam is nearly 8
years old..and the sweetest little boy you could ever meet..he adores
poppy and has never ever done her any harm. Yet she has taken over the
last few weeks to landing on him and biteing him with intent. She's
really taken against him.

This morning my husband and I heard
screams coming from the living room where she was out playing..we ran
in and she had landed on Adam's head and dug in hard with her feet..and
was biting at his face. He has a big scrathch down the side of his head
and a bruise on his cheek and several punctures.. Alan had to firmly
remove her and put her in her cage. She is still there and I am shaking
like a leaf and my poor son is crying his eyes out. I really don't like
her right now

As I say its just Adam she's taken against and
I don't know why or what to do about it..She's in her cage now singing
and whistling as if all is right with the world..and I feel awful. I
love her but its like one step forward and a million back sometimes.

Is
this my fault because I'm not to well and its rubbing off on her? Might
she be in pain? Why would she be so cheesed off with my quiet timid
son? Is it because he's submissive? Is she jealous of him?

Any advice or help would be appreciated.

I've
taken a step back and tried to think what i would advise someone else
in this situation.. I would say time out..but I don't want Poppy to
resent Adam for getting herself caged each time she attacks him..does
that make sense? She's trying to make a point but I don't know what it
is...maybe I'm too tired and low to see what the problem is..

Please advise me guys i know I can trust your good sense x

oh my, that is a horrible situation for sure...my heart goes out to you...imo, i would first separate adam and poppy until you figure out why poppy is attacking him (only let poppy out with adam under your supervision) then maybe you would be able to figure something out better as to why she's doing that...

i dont really have any ideas for this.

but it does sound to me like jealousy, she is maybe trying to compete for you.

either that or it could be the whole Alpha thing, she wants to be leader of the flock ? i dunno really

sorry i cant help you out more
