He is 4 months old.Yes they do go thru a teething stage. My black cap still bites on a regular basis. I think its his thing. I don't allow it I put him back. Some days are no bites and other days he doesn't want to be handled at all. All my conures are chewy!. Tuco is also Remmy's buddy body guard and cage mate. We think Tuco is Remmy's pet. You have a little cutie. How old is he?
You may want to try keeping him off your head/shoulders until he gets over his nippy phase - some birds see that as a dominance thing, being higher than you means they're in charge. I had to do that with Goober for a while and it just involves a firm, but gentle, "NO" and removing them and, in Goober's case, she got placed in my lap. With a green cheek it's a little easier because they're so small If he decides to not cooperate, you can just grab him! Goober on the other hand... :lol:He is 4 months old.
We have made some progress though Rocky still bites hard, he seeks me out. I was sitting at the computer and he flew to the floor. Than he caming running over to me and crawled up my pant leg then up my shirt then went to sit on my head. When I try to take him off he screeches and bites my fingers but he does really want to be by me. I put a dish of water in with him yeaterday and he reallt loved getting wet. I tried video taping him today but it did not turn out good. Right now he is chewing on a cuttle bone and a willow branch.:lovehearts:
