My birds are partially hand trained but sometimes come out by themselves.Recently the birds have been flying on to my finger and off. What anooys me is that for some reason both Snowball and Twitchy have been constantly flying at my face and smacking my face with their wings and then flying off and doing it agian.

It may not be as painful as a bite but it always anooys me to get smacked in the face with my birds wings.

i would say that they think they're in charge.
Clip them. I dont mean this as punishment or anything I mean that it will make the behavior less frequent and by the time their wings grow out they'll forget it was ever a good time

Sounds like they're tryin land to me, pigeon sometimes flys straight at people but then lands on there head and sits on there head just for height realy.

You could try doing some step up exercises, make them step up a few times... Though i might be thinkin of something only works for parrots...

Best thing to do maybe if you dont want to clip them would be train them so when they land on your finger they receive millet, and when they hit you in the face they go back in the cage. Any luck they'll catch on...

Also, do they use your sholder? If you trained them to land there they might stop tryin for your head

nope the step up thing works for keets, anything that happens in bigger parrots happens in keets too people just let them get away with it cuz they're tiny. Kinda like how yorkies really should be treated exactly like rottweilers but they gt away with yipping and biting cuz they're so little and cute

Actually its the oppostie way around a lot. a yorkie yips and people ignore it a rottie barks and people yell something like DOZER SHUT UPP! and the dog stops. that's what I mena. with bigger birds people make sure they're trained certain ways so they dont get dominant because a bigger bird who thinks they're dominant can be a nightmare and a health risk. Everyone lets little brids do whatever because they're little. I jsut figured out Noubas huge biting problem is a dominance thing since her cage is up high which is something that is common in larger birds, but I didnt think it applied to keets...

Thats intresting.... I hate rottweiler with a passion cause was one on road i use to live on and would bark and growl EVERYTIME i went near it...

Anyway, the cage thing makes lot of sence, cause for keets higher is safer...So in wild would be the fittest, strongest keets who'd get the highest branchs :P
