7 Tips so That Your Bird Doesn't Bite

The creator of this video will give 7 tips on how to prevent your bird from biting! Also about why your bird would bite you in the first place and how to prevent your bird from biting you.

There are many reasons why your bird bites you and if your bird bites you constantly it is usually a sign that it is trying to tell you something and biting is its way of getting its message across.

Emotional responses

Nibbling can be a learned behavior or a fear or territorial response, depending on the situation. Even parrots that have been hand-fed since they were babies can develop a fear of humans if they are not used to socializing in the most appropriate and consistent manner.

Even birds that are completely comfortable around people can become frightened and bite their mate on impulse. If you adopted your adult parrot and wonder why it itches so much, find out about its previous life, it could bring you traumas from the past and this is the answer.

Learning to gain your parrot's trust can help allay his fears and prevent not only some headaches, but sore fingers as well. These birds are emotional creatures that bond through trust and respect.

Take good care of him and he will know how to appreciate you. Keep his home clean, of a good size, provide him with entertainment with toys, feed him and interact with him affectionately.

Have you ever thought that it could be you and not your parrot?

The worst thing we can do is approach our birds when we are nervous or in a bad mood. "Domestic" birds are very sensitive and know how to capture what we feel when we approach them.

Your parrot will perceive your state of mind and this will translate into fear and anxiety. Your parrot does not have a lot of time to think, reflect and act, it will probably respond with a quick "bite".

Another reason that can lead your parrot to bite a lot is because with this attitude he gets what he wants and is trying to get attention. The pecking behavior is increasingly reinforced so that they attend us.

If your parrot has already learned this dynamic, ignore him every time he bites and only pay attention to him when he's well behaved. Remember that even if we ignore it when it bites, we must not isolate it, it is a social animal that asks for our love, so we must interact regularly with it: pay attention even if it is not asking for it.

He will soon stop biting because he knows he won't get any reaction from us. When biting say NO firmly but without being aggressive, and when biting without pressure or good behaviour, reward or caress.

Your parrot may be exhausted, irritable, or in a bad mood. A bird may bite when it is tired and stressed. Rest is one of the keys to a good mood for birds. They need at least 12 hours of quiet, uninterrupted darkness to fully relax.

Some tips so that your parrot does not bite so much

If you are still wondering what to do if your parrot scratches a lot, here are some tips to guide his behavior:

  • The healthiest thing you can do as a human companion to your parrot (both for him and for yourself) is to educate yourself and yourself about the personality, behavior, and training of these birds, as well as birds in general. Getting inside your parrot's mind will help you understand him and make your interactions with him more fluid and natural. Staying informed will give you the tools to know how to deal with your parrot's lifelong behavior problems.
  • Exercise is essential. It is very important that your parrot spend its energy on other activities that dissipate the desire and anxiety to bite; the more he flies and plays, the better for him because he will feel happier. Enrich his environment with natural toys like twigs that will keep him busy and encourage his motivation to forage, nibble on things and toys other than his fingers. It is very important to provide entertainment for parrots, they are highly intelligent creatures that need to supplement what they instinctively do in their natural life.
  • Remember that scolding him or forcing him to perform an activity is useless, he will get scared or take it as something that reinforces snacking. Birds are highly intelligent creatures that function naturally through mutual respect. If you try to dominate your parrot and climb on top of it, you will lose its respect and trust.
  • If the pecking is usually constant, learn to know the warning signs that your parrot gives you. This way you will avoid him and he will save himself the stress of the aggression. Any animal usually warns before attacking. The signals will depend on your animal and its character, but some typical ones could be: to move away from you and walk backwards, to play a sound as an alarm to prevent you from approaching, and to open its beak as a challenge.
