conure agression & biting
I am having problems with aggressive behavior & biting with my 3 month old conure! she was really nice sweet & cuddly for about 3 weeks after we got her! Then she started bitiing! She wants to b out & with us! We want to have her out as much as we can but don't want to keep getting bit all the time!She doesn't play at all by herself when she is out, she always has to b on somebody! ( she plays fine when in her cage!) She just wants to crawl all over us! She doesn't even care which one of us & will go from one to the other! She doesn't prefer anyone over the other!
She will b very sweet & playful then all of a sudden start biting meanly & hard! We have tried gently holding the sides of the beak ( this only makes her mad & the biting worse!!), we have tried putting her in her cage for a few mins, we have tried laddering, rewarding her if she quits or doesn't bite, distracting her! Nothing seems to work!! (We have just switched to a pellet diet! So i think her diet is ok!) We have to end up putting her back in her cage! Then she runs back & forth wanting out! We get her out & she will start biting again! Help!! Any advice will b greatly appreciated!
