OK, so basically, I love my maroon bellied conure to bits
, but he's a little bit nippy.
He's about 9 weeks old, was hand-reared, and he's not afraid of hands or anything, but when he's with people he tends to nip.
I know parrots bite when they're scared or aggressive, but he's neither.
He's perfectly calm and friendly, but his 'exploring' bites often become very hard when he's excited or just for no reason at all.
I have no idea how to react, whether to put him in his cage, punish him, distract him, or ignore him!!!!
I would really like some first hand advice on how to stop this.
