Default Ibi is biting too much

My lovely budgie is growing but she is biting more. I have just been bitten on my nose and it really hurt.It made me cry. She is so spoiled that when she doesn't want something, she just bites.
Does anyone had been bitten on eyes? She Bites my nose fingers lips and sometimes my cheek. She does that when I approach to kiss her.That is the way we play but now she has more strength. I wish I could teach her how to stop bitting

When working on taming a pet bird, a person must pay attention the bird's body language and to be able to properly interpret behaviour and the warning signs coming from the pet bird, this is done in order to minimize negative reactions, like biting.
It's also important to realize that no amount of training will be full proof and that budgies can bite at any given point in time and as such we must be careful and not purposely expose the most sensitive areas, especially the eyes. This is where common sense should play a role.

If Ibi is biting your face and harming you in the process (no gentle nibbling/preening), then she is responding negatively to your advances and closer interaction.
This is her way of telling you to back off and not kiss her/invade her personal space and safe boundaries.
What do you mean by teasing her? Maybe the way you have been playing with her have been sending the wrong message and she biting as a consequence.
In order to improve the behaviour, you can start by using positive reinforcement techniques where you will reward Ibi's good behaviour.

It might be good if you reviewed the information on the stickies at the Taming and Bonding section.
You can start with these links:

Good luck!

Default Ibi is biting too much

She let me kiss her in her head and back. Sometimes she bites my fingers.When she has free time on the big cage with the male and I want to take her out, she tries to bite the male . Both are moulting. The male screeches like crazy and he gets me crazy so some days we make competitions to see who makes more noise and he actually wins.


Thanks for the links
I have edit the post in order to clarify my post. Ibi and I have a really strong bond

It sounds to me as though the ways you've chosen to "play" with Ibi have encouraged her biting.

You should never "tease" a budgie -- doing so results in the very behaviors you are now complaining about.
Ibi has been through a great deal in her short life. You need to work with her gently and always in a positive manner if you want her to respond to you in kind.

Take the time to read these threads:

Default Ibi is biting too much

Thanks for the advices !! Ibi has argued with the male budgie too. She is a bossy female. Sometimes she follows me and ask to be spoil.

The thing is that it is really hard not to love her. She inspires me to become a better person and I tend to kiss her daily .

She likes to sleep in my hand and we enjoy both company but well today and the last day she has been a bit aggressive and maybe I overloaded her with kisses and hugs hehe

I will read the threads ! Thank you ! Loves

You may be misinterpreting your Ibi's signs...
Generally speaking and when budgies are past the baby phase, they do not like to be petted, a very bonded budgie can occasionally ask for a head scratch but this is something they let us know and should not be something we impose on them.
By forcing your budgie to do something against her will, you will be breaching the trust she has in you and you will get some bitings as a result.
You should also be careful with these "hugs" as not to hurt her.
It's important to realize budgies are small and delicate birds and an appropriate conduct in terms of handling and playing is needed when spending good quality time with them.

I agree 100% with aluz.

Budgies are not toys, they are delicate living creatures and most budgies prefer not to be handled once they are past the baby stage.

The purpose of this forum is to promote the best practices for the health and well-being of budgies worldwide.

Please ensure all interactions with your birds are appropriate for both their size and their temperaments.

Most pet birds will not bite you. I have had one bird that was like yours. He would bite . Never was able to cure the biting problem. He bit hard and drew blood. He never ended that habit. I guess some birds are like that. Best advice for you is stay far enough away from him so he does not bite you. Unless you find a way to end the biting, it will just continue.
