Hermes is a Brat!!!
Had Hermes out today and he was being really good and whistling like crazy but if you put your hand near him he would go crazy and beak at you like a little psycho!! He also bit me once, not that bad though.
I think he's getting hormonal and it's really annoying...
(I don't cover him at night so he gets the amount of daylight that is natural so that might be an issue..)
I also think that Mike is making his biting a bigger issue than it was because when Hermes beaks at him and bites Mike pulls away. I told Mike not to react or pull away from Hermes but he can't really help it as it's just a reflex.
I'm thinking I'm going to have to try clicker training with him to stop his biting.
He steps up great for me but when Mike tries to get Hermes to step up he'll bite at Mike.
Any advice for me??
