    So I have a sweet 6 month old green cheek conure. I have only had him like a month but he is a totally sweetie and we have a pretty good bond already. These past few days he has started pinching small pieces of my skin and holding on to them until i make him stop. He doesnt really seem to be...

    My bird is biting me, hard

    I'm a first time bird owner and I got my lovebird, Percy, a few months ago. He came from a previous owner who couldn't give him enough attention, we think he's around 10 months old now. Now I say he, but he hasn't been sexed and I'm starting to think he's far more likely to be a female. I've...

    Flight attacks

    Hi, I’m new to the forum. I recently adopted a 4 year old male blue naped amazon. We have reason to believe he has been passed around many families and was abused. He has a large scab on the top of his head and the previous owners kept him in a tiny dog cage and only fed him sunflower seeds...

    Extremely Aggressive cockatiel

    Okay so ill start by saying, this cockatiel was in one of those crowded cages where around 50 birds were held in a small cage and no where to run or go, afraid of all humans and their behavior to come to cages and spook them to get a reaction, i did not intend to get this bird but when i saw...

    Trained, But Always Nippy!

    This is Maebel, our green-cheek/pineapple mutation. https://i.imgur.com/Crvzk1W.jpg She was hatched in January, so she's definitely still a bab birb. I will preface this by saying I understand that GCCs are beaky birds. She is awesome! I'm a first-time bird owner, but well-studied, and my...

    Aggressive biting yellow-bib lorikeet

    Hi all, This is my first post and probably a topic heard quite a bit. I have a male yellow bibbed lorikeet who hatched Apr 11 2018. When he was young, he was very playful and did not bite at all, at least nothing that hurt. I was always gentle, and I would say little phrases like “I got you”...

    Semi aggressive ringneck

    I've had my Indian ringneck male named Forest for a few years now but he is still quite nippy and he bites quite often. His previous home wasn't very good so I understand that it may be because of that but my other rescue birds came around and mostly stopped biting and nipping after a while but...

    :gcc:Hello guys, I'm new to the forum and to owning birds so I need some advice. I got my first pair of Orange-Chinned Parakeets recently and one of them was pretty friendly the first day I got him and would perch on my fingers(he seemed hand tamed) but then after one day he suddenly turned to...

    how to introduce cockatoo to conures? Somebody got bit yesterday :(

    We've had our conures Charlie and kiwi for almost three years. We weren't planning on getting a larger bird anytime soon but my cousins didn't have the time for their cockatoo Nigel because of work and their kids so they sold her to us. We've had Nigel since last Monday on the 20th. Since we've...

    My Little Corrella is aggressive towards other people!!!

    Hello, I am new to the forum, I have joined in hope of finding help. I rescued my little corrella, Buster, 6 months ago. I was told his owner had unexpectedly died and he had been passed to two other people before he was with the couple I took him off. The first people who rehomed him couldn't...

    Bird enjoys bitting finger?

    My budgie, Doodle, is a bit weird when it comes to fingers... Every now and then I can touch their beak and give them a tiny bit of millet but for the most part, they lunge and bite my finger. I know they like to be pet sense one night when they were tired he wanted me to scratch his neck. It...

    Jealous conure bites owner

    I own this one male pineapple conure named Coco. He's always been a little brat, and being my first bird, i'm not quite sure how to stop him from biting. He tends to just nibble on me most of the time, but if I accidentally hurt him or annoy him or do something he doesn't like, he bites hard. I...

    Discipline

    How do I tell a conure "no" to keep it from doing something again? I get bit sometimes and I want them to know that I don't like it. I have two and they're both green-cheek conures. Also, is there a way to keep them quiet if they have a random chirping spree? I don't want to use food as a means...

    Socializing Amazon Parrot

    Hi, I've had an Amazon Parrot for 3 years. As I got him in high school I didn't have much time to spend with him (study study study!). I'd just let him out of the cage and he'd fly and sit on my head, and every now and then he'd fly onto my arm. He NEVER lets me touch him, but sometimes I can...

    Sudden Biting Behaviour

    Hey Everyone, Firstly I am very new to both owning a parrot and the parrotforums. I have had nothing but canaries for the last 10 years, and sadly lost my old girl to a tumour. I decided that I wanted to acquire a bird that would last a bit longer, therefore I could get more time with. I have...
