Post: Green Cheek Conure Biter
Posted by crimson60033 on 10/09/11
My green cheek Rocky was purchased at a small pet store that
specialized in breeding and hand feeding birds. When my son
and I decided on Rocky he was just a baby and we were told
that as much as possible we were to come to the store and
hold him, feed him and just be with him to bond. We went
practically everyday for 3 weeks. Then we were able to
bring him home. He bites. We brought him home in March
2011 and every since he's bitten us for no apparent reason.
I have scabs all over my hands and arms. I know his
aggressive stance and back off when he shows it, I know not
to bother him when he's eating. He does bite when it's
bedtime. He's out all day and only uses his cage for
sleeping. We totally can't understand why out of the blue
he'll just bite badly for no reason we can think of. I've
also tries every "punishment". Now I just give him a firm
"no" and stick him on his play gym. I push it away so he
can't jump on me and he starts playing hard. After he calms
down I take him back and he's sweet as pie for a while the
BAM, the biting starts. Any ideas? Thanks!
