Biting


That’s a big beak! Has one of your greys ever tried to bite you and if so, how do you handle it?


Answer:

Hi Clara,

If you work with a bird you WILL get bitten. I tell them NO, given them a time out, and treat the bite (peroxide, antibacterial creme, and a band-aid).

Thank you,

Dr. Irene Pepperberg
