Default Biting

Hi all,
I was hoping for some advice. We have a one year old single tame budgie which we got when she was 11 weeks old. She was happily and slowly becoming tame with the family but at 5 mnths of age, we had to leave her with a friend because we were going on hoidays for 3 wks. When we got back she was different, she was bitey! She had never bitten before. I understand she must have developed that response to her being forced to be friendly with the person that looked after her, without her being bonded to her. My question however is that now she will be bitey to my son, who is 4 and also occasioanlly my daughter aged 11, who is her owner. She is ok with me at the moment. This uspets my daughter. She will hop onto my sons arm often but go up to bite him on the face. I understand my son is young and unpredictable and the budgie senses that and that it will take time for her to bond with everyone. I just wanted to know how people got around with changing this biting habit? Also another question, does a budgie only bond with one person or is she able to bond equally with all family members? Thanks.

Is your budgie currently in breeding condition or molting?
Sometimes budgies become more inclined to bite during those periods of time. Another possibility is that your budgie is trying to demonstrate her dominance over your children.

Budgies can accept all family members as their flockmates when they are have interaction with each person.

Take a look at this link -- hopefully some of the information will be of help to you.

At the moment my Daes is a bit bitey. She's moulting and incredibly grumpy at times, but what i find works is just not to rise to what she does, and she'll quickly just give up. It's a bit of a shock, but if you try not to react too badly (like arms flailing and shouting sorta reacting) then the budgie might realise that it gets it nowhere.

Pet Budgie: Stopping Parakeets From Biting <-- This might be a bit of help?

also... Budgies are flock animals, so I don't think there's any reason why she wouldn't bond with anyone else!

I'm not really an expert on this, but that's what I know!
