It’s got to be biting for sure! What can you do about it if you have a bird that is aggressive or bites?

It can be difficult to work with a biting bird, but it’s not impossible. You first have to identify what has caused the problem. For example, some cases of aggression may be a learned behavior such as the bird is uncomfortable being handled. If he threatens to bite someone and that person moves away, he has accidentally been taught that aggression works to keep people away. That doesn’t
mean you should allow yourself to be bitten; however, there are ways to teach him to behave differently.

Aggression may also partially be symptomatic of captivity stress. It’s important that a parrot have a rich environment that is stimulating, healthy, and positive. If you can enrich your bird’s world, you can greatly improve his behavior with that alone.

Retraining Your Bird

If you already have a bird that bites, you have to work at the root cause. Once you know the cause, you can work on establishing a training system that addresses not just the biting but also the cause for it.

You’re not alone. Being bitten by a parrot happens to just about every parrot lover at some point. A bird that has bitten is not a bad bird. Biting is actually a normal part of parrot behavior if he becomes frightened, territorial, hormonal, threatened, etc. You need to be prepared to work around the possibility of being bitten while retraining your bird. You can’t force your bird to not bite you, but you can condition him and help change the behavior.

Dear Parrot Lover,

The Secrets to Your Parrot

Unlock Your Bird

happy, healthy and obedient parrot

If you’ve lived with a parrot for any length of time, then you’ve likely encountered a few issues along the way. Does your bird bite, scream, and act aggressively?

The only way to unlock your bird is to understand your bird. Many of the commonly identified “problem” behaviors in birds are instinctual in nature. Remember, while they may be a pet, they are still a wild animal, and these behaviors are rooted in the wild behavior.

For example, one of the most common behavior problems in pet birds is the screaming. In the wild, this loud calling or screeching is often used to call out to other birds when they are separated from one another. Your bird may screech for you loudly to bring you back to him.

Instinctual behaviors are very difficult to eliminate, but you can condition your bird to behave differently or to control his urges through training.

Controlling Your Bird

In order to help condition your bird to control his behavior, you have to work with him to show him what to do. You cannot ever do this through force or punishment, as you won’t be successful using these methods. Everything must be based in building a relationship with your bird and has to be positive.

There are 3 simple steps to success with your bird:

1. Arming yourself with as much bird knowledge as you can.

2. Using this knowledge to identify and to better understand your bird’s
behavior. This way you can correct it.

3. Make sure to prevent the behavior from returning.

Parrot Secrets is one way to help arm yourself with the necessary knowledge and skills.
