My Coco gos for blood all of a sudden her nips turned into lunges at my hand if i reached in to hang a brocolli or something, I give her tone to shred. And she used to step up. Now after abou 2 steps ups she just trys to attak and it is vicious, i tried saying No in a firm voice, i tried rewarding the steps ups, but i cannot anymore be cause all she does is lunge for my hand. I think I made a monster but have no idea how or how to stop it. I tried to let her bite me as much as she wanted ( I am sure about her doing this to be dominant) but it made it worse.Now she will bite so i let her as in I don't care then she will literally hang from my finger trying to chew thru my skin and if I try to move her to a perch she just keeps holding on and biting . I never make a sound. Sigh. Any advice would be appreciated.
I don'y now what to do anymore.

I am having the same problem! Tulip was doing REALLY well with the whole biting thing until today! My daughter had a friend over and they were playing with her in the bedroom while I helped my hubby pull a tub out of the basement we were taking to the garbage..(long story!) Anywho, my daughter comes out and says Tulip is biting really hard again! I was really shocked because we had worked so hard with her to get her to stop... well I found out later the friend was grabbing her and holding her tightly in her hands.. mad GRRRRRR!! I was really mad at the girl and kinda mad at my daughter for not standing up and saying "DON'T DO THAT!" Needless to say.. NO MORE FRIENDS will be holding her!! So anywho, we are back to square one! The only way I have been able to stop the biting is by first saying "NO Biting!" firmly then placing her in a small carrier we have and putting her in a quiet dark room for 5 min. with no interaction from anyone in the family. I time it exactly. So far it seems to work for us. I also try to do this fairly quickly after the bite so she realizes that is what caused her to be placed there... I hate doing it though, but the unstable perch and just saying NO doesn't seem to work with her either! frown

It will stop. Noel bite me fore about 2 or 3 month.

Every keet is different.

Dont loose your temper on them. I lost my temper about 5 times with noel. We got set back about 3 weeks because of it.

see, if your bird is biting because of dominance i wouldnt let them bite, thats like saying ok you're rihgt you're in charge. and then she doesnt have to do anything you ask her to.
go for tweets' way of doing it. that might work much better, make sure you make yourself in charge not her, or you'll never win.

mine will bite if I hold them in my hand but not that hard.as i'm holcing them and they are biting i'm saying in a soft voice don't bite your mommy,pretty bird cute bird no bite and it seems to calm them down like I said the bites are not that bad unless I scare them then they bite hard but they stop when I start talking to them.
