Default Male budgie bites me alot?

Hello.

My male budgie bites me alot? Should it not be other way around that female should bite more than males? My female budgie never bites me? but my male does too much?

He is 2 year old & very tame otherwise. I had him since born...

Each budgie is an individual, and each on has their own personality, likes and dislikes, and preferences. It may just be that your male prefers not to be handled, or is feeling uncomfortable in certain situations.

Is there a pattern to his biting? Does he bite when you do specific things with him, or certain times of the day?

The best thing to do is to ignore the bites, and give no reaction. Even a negative reaction is still a reaction that can incourage him to keep up the unwanted behaviour.

Take your time with him, and just let him be comfortable and don't push his boundaries, you don't want to lose his trust in you.

Be careful. Some budgies are prone to bite. Some will act like that for years. Best to do is to be careful not to be bitten. Training the biting habit may or may not work.

Budgies generally bite because they are scared, they are trying to show dominance and/or they are protecting their territory.

When you have a bird, you have to work within the constraints of the bird's preferences rather than your own.

As mentioned, some birds do not like to be held or touched -- however they may still be willing to interact with you on their terms (e.g. nibbling a bit of millet from your hand but remaining safely on their perch.)

With regard to male/female behavior, please take a look at this link:

I agree; your budgie is trying to tell you he doesn’t like the presence of your hand. If it’s only at certain times, see if you are doing the same thing when he bites.

Each of those scenarios sounds like a reasonable excuse for your budgie to bite.

He doesn't want to go back in his cage.
He doesn't want to get off your shoulder, where he is happy and comfortable.
If he's mating with something, then for SURE he won't want to be interrupted. lol

Random attacks are generally not random. You may be missing his warning signs of being uncomfortable, irritated, scared, or any other reason.
