Is it true male birds as pets are attracted to the females in the house then the males because he loves my mom n grandmother but bites guys?

As the owner of an African Grey if they are raised by a woman, they are attached to females, the same as if raised by a man. However, my bird gets along with some men and others he freaks.

Maybe he senses something you don't? Such as that maybe those men aren't that keen on birds as pets?

No, it is the nature of the African Grey. And unfortunately, we don't own our African Grey, they own us. :-)

My cats get along with him great. It's funny when he calls their names and asks what are you doing? :-). And that person is incorrect, birds don't smell other birds "privates". This isn't how birds reproduce (sigh). Enjoy!

Idk how they know, but they do! I personally have seen it with parrots, geese, ducks, rabbits and dogs. They transfer their role to humans too. It's a little disturbing to be in their "harem." O.o

The way the sense it is because they are looking for reproduction and can sense the females privates

I know. I was just keeping it lighthearted. The "disturbing" part is true.

I tamed a male goose at the resort I was managing. He used to attack everyone, including me! After I befriended him, to keep the members from strangling him, he took a shining to me. From that point on, my husband couldn't come within 50' of me without the goose taking him on! Lucky goose that my husband is an animal lover.
Btw, that was one awesome bird! We named him Guy.
