Why do Parrots Bite?

1) The Bird is an Innocent Baby
Baby parrots incorporate beaks to discover the surrounding and to test items. It is not advisable to encourage such behaviour. In fact, a dramatic reaction, such as loud yelling or laughing, can excite the behaviour.   Tyranny punishment will not yield good results. Train the bird “step-up” to have more control over the bird. Make sure to practice daily and gradually with your bird. Some parrot behaviourists advise “laddering” the parrot if it is being nipping. This includes making the parrot do many (around 7) step ups in succession between your hands. The “earthquake” method works as wall.  Move your hand or body when the parrot nips to distract it. Make sure not to be the cause of bird falling. 
Some references are likely to advise giving the parrot a time out in its cage. This is not always practical because perhaps the bird is unaware of its existence in the cage by the time you leave it in there.


2) Parrots Have a High Self-esteem to Guard their Territory.
Some parrots will guard their cages, play stands, or favourite mate.  It is usually a perfect idea to train such a parrot to step up on a stick. Accordingly, you can remove a cage-guarding parrot from its cage without being bitten. Birds often turn out quite territorial during breeding season. Amazon Males are chiefly prone to this since in the wild they are the ones who build and take care of the nest. 


3) Parrot is reluctant to Do Something.
The parrot is attempting to control you. If you seem scared and you always back off, expect the parrot to be even more aggressive. Daily step-up practice is the better you to control the parrot.


4) Redirected Aggression
This may be a trouble with parrots on shoulders.  If the parrot notices a rival person come in, something annoys it, or it becomes startled by something, it is likely it bites its owner. In such cases, the bird may not deliberately bite the owner, but rather it became aggressive and bit the closest target. If you allow a bird standing on your shoulder, make sure it is trustworthy and that it always gets off when you order it to do so.


5) Fear
Scared parrots generally try to escape danger, but if they cannot, they will bite whatever is frightening them. Avoid punishing a too timid, scared parrot.


6) Parrot is Overstimulated
This is generally noticed in very active parrots, like Amazons, Cockatoos, Caiques, and Conures, though it is expected to be doneby any bird. While playing, the parrot can become very excited and then bites its owner, for it is not thinking straight. Leave an overly excited bird calm down before you pick it up to avoid bites.
