Leaving (Being Placed Back Into the Cage)

(Back to Main Biting)

Some 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. 

If your 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.
