Eclectus Parrot


What’s the best way to stop her biting


Answer:

Hi Paul,

Birds always have a reason for biting, so you need to determine why she is biting. Then you need to deal with it by avoiding a bite to begin with, and ignoring her if she bites. Punishment does not work with parrots. Undesired behaviors need to be ignored and good behaviors need to be rewarded. I’ll give you the link to our pet bird behavior page as well as training page with more information for you.
