- Real Name
Hello! As some of you know, I have my first ever conure. He is only 15 weeks, so everything is still quite new to him! I was well aware that conures are bitey birds, but at the moment it is getting a bit...out of hand. He is getting to the point where he will bite me until the skin breaks and bleeds. I currently have about 5 healing scabs on my hand...Anyway, I have tried not reacting when he bites, tried not placing him down right away, tried blowing on his face, tried a bunch of other random tactics. I just don't want him to end up biting other people and risking even him getting more hurt than they would have. He definitely is not scared of humans at all either and tries to get neck rubs as much as possible. He also for some reason enjoys, "Play fighting" when you put your finger as if you're about to boop his beak. That probably doesn't help that behavior either. Any tips?
