My Lovebird has decided all of a sudden while she is sitting on my
wrist to go along my skin and take little nips...not big open mouthed
bites, but little nips that break the skin. I then have a welt for a
few hours on each little spot. It almost resembles a mosquito bite.
I have no idea why she has started this and it hurts! She also does
it to my neck if she is on my shoulder. I need advise as to how to
break her of this habit. Needless to say, it makes one a little
reluctant to hold her when she does this. Since I got her (1 month
ago) she has been a very affectionate, loving bird (hand fed). She is
a little over 3 months old. The only thing that has changed in her
life is I had her wings clipped last weekend. I can't imagine what
the correlation would be but if anyone has any advice I would love to
hear it. Thanks!
