Bitting parrot

What I find the best is to set the bird on the ground and walk away. The parrot will want to be with you and will waddle towards you on the ground if the wings are clipped

Editor's note: Birds should NEVER be on the floor where your shoes bring in disease and toxic items could be found by your bird.

Amazon parrot biting

You will need to develop a relationship of trust and mutual respect and then start the training process. We have some articles on our Parrot Training page that will help. You may also want to purchase some books on Amazon parrots, because they go through hormonal stages that may last years and you may not be able to handle the bird at all during that time.

This depends on several factors. First is how long have you had your bird. Second is whether this biting is a new behavior or has been going on for a long time.

Since you did not specify about the above questions, we cannot answer your question to any degree. If your bird is new, then he needs to be examined by an Avian Vet within the first few days to make sure he is healthy enough for taming and training. If your bird has been with you a while, and has just now started biting, then you need to take to Avian Vet because sudden changes in behavior indicates a possible physical issue.

If your bird needs taming and training, he has to be examined by an Avian Vet ONLY before any training because a sick bird or one who is incubating an infection can die from the stress involved in taming and training.

I could sit here and tell you but it will take to long. You should Google it I saw a few good things and you need to pick what works best for you and your parrot.
