Default Ziggy apparently doesn't like to share lol

It's been awhile sense my last post and sense then I have gotten Ziggy pretty Well hand tame and fairly comfortable with me though she is still not fond of being touched or stroked. One of the things I do with her is sit on the couch with her which is up against a window which she loves and I'll play with a straw toy. It's literally straw with a knot in the middle. I just run my fingers across it like Im preening it and she joins in and all is good. Now she is still a baby and going through a molt. As of late she'll be playing along when out of no where she starts biting at my fingers. I kno she's chalk full of hormones and all birds go through a stage when the act out. To me it literally seems like she's trying to play dominance and this is my toy. What can I do to discourage this behavior?

They all seem to go through a phase, especially hens. To keep it from becoming problematic, check this info out...https://talkbudgies.com/training-bond...-behavior.html

Thank you Jonah. That was very informative and I think I have a good idea How to discourage it. Though Im still unsure on How to bring a cease to the actual biting itself. When we play she isn't perched on my hand she is perched on the back of the couch So I can't give her a little "earthquake " : \

Ziggy sounds delightful, we find our budgies only bit when they were tired, not interested in what we wanted them to do.
I also think you are spot on with your thoughts regarding all the hormones.

She is pretty boy Lol. Sense last post I was starting to think it was out of being tired because it seemed to be occurring after an hour and a half of being out of the cage. However this morning she started within a half hour of play and it was accompanied with a growling sound Lol. So what I've been doing is immediately removeing the toy and start making her do a round of step ups. I then try to return to play at this point she's no longer interested and makes it known she wants in her cage. My line of thinking is if I immediately put her back in her cage she might see that as an escape from her "discouragement" So I only return her after she has calmed down n perching nicely on my shoulder or elsewhere. Other then this minor nibbling she is a joy to have in our home: )
