If I bite You
The bird's beak serves naturally for feeding or cutting food, breaking the shell of fruit to reach the sweet environment (walnut), climbing and moving on trees (in nature) or by aphids (in captivity), and ultimately a very important function of the beak there is defense or bite.

Well, that bite is the nightmare of every fan and not a parrot fan. From my own experience I know that 99.9% of people have the fear of bite when they approach the parrot. Fear is greater if it is a bigger parcel, eg Macaw.
Okay, that's a normal reaction not only to humans but to many animals, because when you see that big beak, you're not really anyway, and you do not even have to be.

First, one must respect the bird, its customs, natural reactions, study behavior and habits.
When you learn how a bird works, it's easy to make contact with it, but if you do not learn or do not want to adjust to its habits then there might be panic.
Parrots are animals where nothing goes wrong. There is no compulsion in the parrot, there is no classic punishment (there are other ways) but we do not say there is no hitting (not just the parrot but the animals in general).

If you do not approve of the above-mentioned "rules" the bird could understand it as an attack and defend it. So try to blame Ara Chloroptera (green wing Macaw) !!!!
Okay, that was a few classic reasons why the bird could bite, and there's more to it.
I recently had a moment when my Loro (Ara Chloroptera) attacked and wanted to bite, but quite justified.
Namely, in the last few months, Loro began to show great interest in mating. Since he's 7 years old, that's understandable. He even started to interest toThiago (Ara Ararauna), who was also a male, so I thought at the moment that its gay, which is no strange thing, because it is possible not only in humans but also in animals. But then he began to rub the feathers, and we decided to find him female.

When we found her and put them together, the other day they were already paired and inevitably ran for her by the athletes who some "coward". When I came that day to see him and approached the aviators close to them, he jumped and wanted to bite me, thinking I came to take her and take her away from him. There I saw that they crashed to the ears and became a real couple. Of course I'm guilty of his barking attempt because I should have assumed that he could protect himself.

There are many reasons why a bird can bite:


* fear - for fear it acts defensively.
* Agressive game with a bird - is bored by it fast and (or) rough game starts to retreat and eventually bounces off.
* jealousy - for example, when guests come to the house and pay more attention to them, not birds.
* the flag of the territory - for example, an unknown person enters hand in her lodge, volunteer
disrupted daily habits and routines eg, a bird is preparing for an afternoon rest (siesta) and you for some reason do not allow it
* it wants to dominate - it strides up to hyour shoulder and you persistently do not allow him
* You'll spit on the food at the time of feeding - and I'll bite you too
* Aggressiveness and hitting - When someone with an otherwise quiet bird begins to play aggressively or hit it, it starts instinctively defending

How to prevent bites, avoid the above mentioned or be smarter than it is, and find a way to break it from bites, for example:

do not cause her fear,
when playing always and all movements must be light and slow,
give the birds wooden toys to chew them and so the anger goes on.
If you see the bird showing signs of jealousy and if you figure out which situations are happening, avoid these situations.
 If the bird bite you, do not react fast as painfully as you will be even more interested in barking and may understand it as a kind of game and begin to apply it in the future.

Do not challenge the bird by receiving it, and by flicking the toe as it irritates and is nervous, and the bite is inevitable, and the worst by repetition can go to habit.
If you see the bird is nervous and wants to bite, leave it at peace to calm down and then continue the activity you have imagined.

 Special attention should be paid if the bird is not obediently handled, then there is a great possibility of bite. Therefore, if you are buying a bird, ask whether it is manually feeded. The real breeder would have to tell you how much he worked on socialization and domestication with the bird, and if he did not work a lot, take a little more time to deal with it. Those breeders, merchants, overlookers who just look to make money will not tell you the truth but just watch how to catch the bird and collect money.

Unfortunately, such is a lot, and I met them too. And in such a case if you have sold a bird that has not been manually sown, and you are inexperienced in taming, you are in trouble and bites will be inevitable.
Also, do not buy birds from a variety of ads, especially if it's about older birds, because they lived under one regime and you're going to give another, you do not know what the former owners were to that bird, and what kind of bird's emotional state is.

In any case, if the bird shows any symptoms of aggression, anxiety and fear, avoid such a bird because you may have problems.
Here, if I helped you find out why you're bitten by a bird, I'm glad if I helped you pull the bird off bite, I'm also glad to have you repelled you to buy a bird from someone who wants to get you down and just make money and if he do not care how the bird will feel, how will you come to an end with this bird and someone who will not support you in the future, that's what I especially like.

Bye, bye!
