I have a tamed budgerigar. When he gets on my hand he... bites! I think he does it just for fun but it hurts! Is there a way to make him stop doing this? Maybe to put some pepper on my hand or something else untasty? He's about 2 months old. Thank you!
Hi Anon

I think you should first of all investigate into the problem of why your bird is biting you. Budgies usually don't bite out of their own accord, but because something is a matter. It's hard to solve a problem, when you don't know the cause.

I found a very good website, for people with budgies who has a tendancy to bite. Here you can read all about it, and maybe get to the root of the problem.

Best of luck to you.
