Birds that bite


Biting is a natural manifestation of the birds, so it is important to establish with certainty whether the bird will fly bites or just easy to get your attention. In most cases, the bird uses its beak in for lack of aggressiveness, using him as a third "hand" or a branch to test the resistance that is going to settle.

Owners of birds can easily confuse the true with the use of harmless bite the beak. While a pinch is not very pleasant, a real bite can be downright painful, leaving a deep wound. You have to learn the warning signals that we transmit bird (feathers dilated pupils or high) to predict inaripatei bite. In fact, most of the measures we take to refer more to avoid than to correct the behavior of bird bites.

There are several reasons to choose a bird to bite:

- In the wild, the birds fly away from areas where they feel in danger. In captivity, winged not have this option and choose to defend or protect their home or partner using the bites.

- If you have made ​​a habit of putting the bird back in the cage where the bite, the pet will know that every time you want to sleep or eat in the cage all you have to do is to bite someone. Try another way to learn bird requiring the return to the cage. You to learn commands such as "back home", say the words every time you put the bird in the cage. If you have a bird that talks, it can be taught to say when you want to be brought back into the cage. Once expressed desire, follow it to strengthen the link between command and gesture.

- When the bird does not feel well and does not want to leave the cage, and may bite the hand that tries to remove from her home. Sometimes the birds want to be left alone (like humans) and if not any urgent inaripatei should respect your wishes.

- If you just want to "test" that follows your finger to settle and the owner retires suddenly, the bird will try to pick up the finger to "immobilize". Teach the bird to sit on a stick when you want to remove the cage and open cage and wait out the only winged. If the bird does not want any way out, use a towel and wrap it out safely.

After using the towel a few times you give them visible and the only option to get your hand. Birds surprisingly understand much of what we communicate and if you show a hand towel in the other arm and II, many will choose winged to climb on your hand.

- Birds like manifestations energetic and if you scream in pain after being bitten, winged and may fly only will you see and hear the reaction. If the bird will bite, do not react violently. It may be difficult to remain calm when bled, but just say "no" firmly and place the bird in the cage or on a stand before you wound care.
