Now that I finally have my parrotlet as sweet as can be I just had to go and get a green cheek conure baby! Back to sore hands. He is only a couple of months old. Sometimes when I get him out he is pretty sweet and other times he bites left and right. He isn't scared. It's intentional. He just seems a little manic at times and that is when he is really nippy. I try to keep something for him to play with that I can substitute for him chewing on my skin. So I think I am doing the right thing. But is this normal?
