Biting and attacking bird
by: Tracie

It is very possible to earn your bird's trust and to replace the biting with good behavior. It will take time and work on your part though. With Chet's free bird training help program, you see results fairly quickly. He hopes you will end up purchasing his whole system, which is very good, but you will get good information just from his free stuff.

We have a few parrot training articles you can read on our Parrot Training page also. Please check these out and see if they might help you too.

First of all, you need to take him into see an Avian Vet in your area. An Avian vet is a vet just for birds, and this is who he needs to see. Make sure he is healthy without any infections, parasites, etc.

Second, Tracie has some training information out here, so take advantage of it and start learning how to train your bird. Do not begin any kind of training without taking him into vet first for a thorough checkup as sick birds won't learn a thing.

Third, and very important, is to take a stand for your new family member. Say to yourself that you all WILL GET THROUGH THIS, AND ERIC WILL BE A GOOD RELIABLE FAMILY MEMBER. It is not unusual for birds to attach to one member of the family, so do not be concerned about this. Learning how to train him is your first step to a more well behaved bird. Parrots have the emotional and mental development of a 4-5 year old human child, so keep this in mind. He is smart, quick and will take advantage of you until he learns that HE IS NOT THE BOSS OF YOU! It is way different being owned by a parrot than being owned by a dog or cat. You are dealing with a higher intelligence level, plus parrots are first and foremost wild animals. They react to some things like a wild animals and can always be capable of biting.

Take him to a qualified Avian vet, look into the training materials Tracie offers out here and get him on the road to being better behaved. Also LOVE HIM, PROTECT HIM, FEED HIM THE VERY BEST FOOD YOU CAN AFFORD, PUT HIM IN A NICE CAGE WITH SAFE TOYS, NATURAL WOOD PERCHES AND LET HIM GET ENOUGH REST. At least 10-12 hours of quiet and darkness and about the same of daylight. If birds do not get enough rest, they will be just like a kid needing a nap--COMPLETE TERRORS.
