Re: Help! GC Conure won't stop biting!

I will knock Rio off balance a little when she has decided to bite, with a stern "no bite", which usually does the trick. But there are times when she will mouth and play with my finger/s, without pressure. This is totally acceptable to me. Or if I'm chasing her tail, she will play back using her beak, but never hurts me. When she is being cuddly we have this other thing we do, I call it a kiss. I will gently grab her beak, tell her kiss which is then followed by scratches. Works about 98% of the time in calming her down if she get a lil too excited. If you don't trust your bird, never allow them on your shoulder, or anywhere else where you are not in complete control. These guys at times can be like bratty children, testing their boundaries. When a Rio is having a bad day, she usually spends her time either in her cage, on her cage, or playing between her Orb and stand and I am completely off limits to her when she is behaving badly. Ha!

Re: Help! GC Conure won't stop biting!

I had that problem with one of mine green cheeks too.
First i backed off since i was too scared.
But after a while i got sick of it,and put my foot down.
Every time i tried to have her step up she would bite or when she was on my hands.
Now i just push my finger against her belly so she has no choice but to let go and step up.
Now she knows i will just do that,and it really has become less and less.

Re: Help! GC Conure won't stop biting!

This works for me, but it really depends on how close you guys are, like..on a personal level.

When I get over-zealous with my scritching, Kiwi will let out a short screech, turn and peck at my finger as if to say "Ouch, stop". I will then respect her wishes and stop.

In turn, when she gets over-zealous with me (she likes to lie on her back on my palm and wrestle with my fingers) - I do the same shriek. She will immediately stop, and look me right in the eye, where I would ham it up a bit and look very sad while saying "Ow, that hurt Kiwi". It's funny, I can almost see it register in her face. We will go back to playing after that, but she is immediately gentler, and sometimes will just transition into preening my fingers instead of "rough-play"

So yeah, you can try this if you and your bird have a similar connection.

For clicker training I use millet spray. Some of his other favorites are apples, grapes, and sun flower seeds.

Lu Lu really doesn't like to displease so if I yell at her she normally stops

Re: Help! GC Conure won't stop biting!

I think I have your birds Brother! I have tried using the body language thing and i think it works well. This sounds silly but when he starts to squint and his eyes turn almond shape I know not to pick him up or play with him. I also noticed around 8pm he starts to get very bitey so i put him to bed. when my bird bites he'll run around my back biting along the way, i usually end up ripping off my T shirt and putting him and my shirt in the cage. Good news though, He actually stopped biting my ears and earrings. Ive been telling him "off" and using a perch as stick, now (it took months) he backs away and he's very gentle when he does grab my ears. I think its just a matter of patience. Its funny my boy loves the floor too, he walks around like he owns the place!!! he likes to chase my dogs away. The dogs are terrified. Good luck!!
