Rainbow lorikeet
Hi all
Our 5 year old rainbow lorikeet bites me for no reason. He'll sit on my shoulder and then just lash out and bite my ear, my face or wherever he can for no reason at all, and it hurts, he draws blood. He's bitten my finger so hard that when I shake my hand to get him off me, he just hangs on my hand by his beak. He adores my wife and won't bite her. He started biting me at around 6 months of age. It's really upsetting that I can't pet him or play with I'm. What can I do to stop this biting behaviour?
