My lovebird went through a biting "teenager" phase.... just
had to bear with it, and also, firmly telling her "No
Biting!" til she learned what it meant. Catch him before/as
he starts biting. Never yell or slap a bird- it will just
make them more aggressive/defensive. My Loki is about 4 yrs
old now, and much better about biting. If I say 'no biting'
she (mostly) stops right away. She also doesn't bite nearly
as hard- I think it took her a while to understand her own
