Okay so, I have had my budgie since September, and I have slowly worked my way up to using millet to get my hen to hop onto my finger. I have noticed some behavior that I haven't been able to find anywhere else(apologize if there's a thread somewhere here.)
Basically, my hen will hop onto my finger for the millet, but sometimes bite me pretty hard, enough to turn the area red or leave an indent. I've tried to ignore it to see what happens, but she will literally keep going until I put her down or she goes back to the millet.
I have also tried getting her to step up without the millet, and it's the same result. She goes crazy biting the heck out of my hand. Will step up without issue, either with or without millet, but this biting thing has me baffled and I'm not sure what to do?
Any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated.
