Budgie biting hard
by: Tracie

I am sorry that your Budgie is doing this. Often birds bite because they are trying to communicate with us and we are not "getting" what they are trying to say.

There is a fine balance between you helping the bird know that you are in charge and yet respecting what the bird wants. We need our birds to help our birds trust us and love us, but we have to earn that trust and love.

We have some articles on our Parrot Training page that might help you. Please read the different articles there and see if they might help you understand your bird better.
