I need to know how to make a parakeet to stop bitting. I want to train them to step up but they always bit me. I talk to them when put food in there dish or anytime when I am in the cage, and even when I am walking by. I got them pretty much to where I can go by the cage and them not running to the other side. So what should I do?


Here is a riddle for you that 80% of a kindergarden class got that only 17% of the staff got. PM me the answer.
What is greater than God, More evel than the Devil, The poor have it, the rich need it, and if you eat it you will die?

Well, your parakeet is scared as would any untrained parakeet. When your bird bites you I would recommend lightly blowing on him, and he will probably look away. If he does bite you anyways though, try your best not to flinch or pull back. After a while of this, he will realise he aren't affected by his attack, and he won't do it -at least not to often-.

Purichan is right. If they ever are on your hand and bite give them a shake. A geantle one just so they losse their balancea little

DONT GIVE THEM A SHAKE..thats how i trained my hamsters, but it DOES NOT work with keets..they will bite harder and more often..you have to get their trust..penny was biting me for a while, but i just ignored the pain and he stopped biting..hed bite me and id gently pet him. he trusts me now..but he is still a chicken..DO NOT RETALIATE AGAINST A PARAKEET!! THE ONLY WAY TO GET THEM TO STOP IS TO GAIN THEIR TRUST AND LIKE PURICHAN SAID, make them think that their biting doesnt hurt.
