Default It Would Seem That I Have a Cheeky Budgie

Sprite is almost four weeks old and she is very cheeky. At certain times of the day she won't bite but most of the time the biting won't quit. I am not sure how to fix this. She never used to bite. This seems to be recent behaviour. However, she seems to be a very exploratory budgie baby. Could her biting be possibly because she wants to be out and explore? I bought them a couple of toys she could chew on in her cage. I am trying to figure out why she is so cheeky. My two young boys, Frankie and Skye don't bite at all. Anyone else experience this with their very young babies? I read cutelittlebirdies link on biting and when I do the quick motion to get her to stop she latches down even harder. I have her out with me right now as I type this and she is running all over the place I come near her though and she puffs right out and tries to bite.

Budgies explore their environment using their mouth.

It sounds as if Sprite is extremely curious and wants to check everything out and see if it tastes good at the same time.

I am starting to think that is what she wanted. Just to come out and run around and kill some energy. She didn't seem to bit too much when I went to put her back in the cage. It seems when she is out her brain is EVERYWHERE It's amazing to see how the 3 of them have their own unique personality and Sprite certainly has a large one I suppose when she has a lot of out of cage time her biting, I am hoping, will stop altogether.

When my Budget was little , I hand reared him, he would virtually mouth everything he came into contact with, sort of like a baby teething. He doesn't bite at all now he is grown unless he is cranky and tired, which is then my own fault
