Re: Need help, 4 yr old yellow nape bites and won't step up!

Keep the birds separated. Handle each separately, in a room away from the cages. First sign of bitng, say NO and put the bird down some where, and ignore it.. I mean don't even look at it. Give it 5 min, then try again. Keep the handling sessions to half hour at first, longer as it gets better. Don't forget treats while it's being good. Amazons are ruled by their belly. Good luck and don't give up.
