    today, surprisingly, i got bitten by a bird and he drew blood.

    now, again, luckily it wasn't my bird. I was at my local bird store, and someone had brought their caiques in to be groomed. I asked a little bit about them, picked up the 'nice' one, and went back to hanging out with Jeffrey

    after they got groomed, I asked if I could hold the caique that was less likely to bite, and I did. For a moment he was calm, but he was probably a little overwhelmed by everything and he chomped down! It didn't hurt any more than a bad gcc bite, and it didn't really phase me until I noticed I was bleeding. The owner I apologized and all, but i understood that it's just how birds are. I got a bandaid and went back to playing with Jeffrey :laugh:


    it's been a few hours, it wasn't that bad

    I'm cautious of "nice" pets. I think owners should be cautious as well.

    You're very lucky, because caiques can readily chomp down and shred your skin like there was no tomorrow.
