African Grey biting

It is hard to say why your bird is suddenly afraid of your hand, or whatever she is unhappy with.

Birds are hard to figure out sometimes, you have to sit and think back to when this started happening. Please read our training articles on biting and see if they might help you figure this out.

You will either have to click on the "Parrot Training" button on the upper left or copy and paste the link below.
