My cockatiel that I got untamed at the pet store on August 10, will bite me sometimes, like if I stick my hand in his cage. When she is on my shoulder I will try getting her off with my finger and say step up in a happy voice but all she does is bite and hiss at me. Is it because she likes where she is and does not want to move? or because she just doesn't like me touching her?
I just turned my head just barely to talk to my sisters and she made a sound and bit my hair and almost neck skin. I have taught her to step up and I believe she has a bond with me because she looks forward to coming outside of her cage(when I get her out with a perch) and loves to go outside(her wings are clipped). I love her so much but dont like the way she bites me. It hurts!
