Post: my red bellied parrot
Posted by Alyssa on 11/21/04
i have a red bellied parrot, and it is the first bird i
have ever owned. we bought from a pet store and was very
afraid for about 6 months. now she is a very good girl, but
i still have probelems when i try to get her on to my hand.
she thinks everything is ok for her to bite, including my
hands and her beak is pretty sharp. the problem is
consistent, and once she caused pretty serious damage,
grabbing the top of my hand and not letting go. i dont
think it is in defense, i think she doesnt know it hurts
me, and she is just trying to get up by pulling herself up
by her beak. i dont know what to do, and im scared to
practice with her, because it reAlly hurts when she bites.
