Re: New, happy owner of a black headed caique!

What you do is instead of saying no and putting him down. Al you do is when he bites you stop what your doing with him and stay there for a minute until he stops. Do not say anything. Just stand and wait for him to stop biting. Do not pull him away either. He wants a reaction from you. If you say no he gets a reaction. If you touch him to get him to stop he gets a reaction. Putting him down is also a reaction.
There is no such thing as a bad or mean parrot. It is just a parrot that needs alittle more time and help..
