(Being Placed Back Into the Cage)
(Back to Main Biting)
parakeets are so fixated to their owner’s next step that many know
they will be placed back into their cage at certain times. This
can trigger biting and the very sight of the cage will anger
them. This problem can easily be dealt with by randomly placing
your parakeet back into its cage. If you mix up the routine your
parakeet will not be able to predict certain tasks.
parakeet bites because it knows you are walking towards the cage
to place him back, gently cradle your hands around his back and
head while you place him into the cage. This will give you more
control and will greatly reduce the changes of being bitten. If
the parakeet does not bite reward him through praise or treats.
