    This isn’t helpful at all. It’s word for word exactly as someone else had
    written on a website

    First of all, you talk too fast and it’s hard to understand what you are
    saying half the time. You saw a video and that makes you an expert on
    Cockatiels? I have had Cockatiels for many years. They all have their own
    personalities. If you have a biter there is nothing you can do. Some love
    to be held and cuddle and some just like to sit with you and let you pet
    their heads but quick motions will make them bite. My one bites hard
    enough to draw blood but he will let you pet his head. Its their
    temperament………you cannot stop them from biting once they learn they
    can control the situation with biting. There are no signs he’s going to
    bite before he bites. He is a rescue and I think the first owners may have
    mistreated him.

    lol why would i do that? i have a budgie and we spar all the time, shes
    careful not to bite too hard and usually flies to me whenever she sees me
    begging to play.

    @zeffyismylove i did that when i first got Joy and it seemed to
    work,another thing i did was get an old cloth (clean) and wrap him in that
    so his head was popping out and just hold him while i was sitting down and
    this worked a bit aswell.

    @TheSick80 sorry for posting a response twice i dodnt realise it was the
    same person…sometimes joy ( my tame bird in the video) nibbles my hands
    and sometimes if im trying to get him in to his travelling cage or hes mad
    (like when we went away for holiday he ignored me for a bit becasue he was
    angry that i had lets him for a bit…) they may bite..with patience your
    bird will definatly get used to you…besides they live for a long time so
    you have a while 🙂 x

    I have had my bird for 3 years and he still bites, he always flies to me,
    he also doesn’t like to be patted, he hates my mum, we don’t know why he
    hates my mum when she cleans his cage feeds him and gives him water most of
    the time

    for TheCockatielChannel, not to hurt your feeling or anything, but I think
    your bird needs pellet and fruit diet. The flaky beak means that he or
    she’s barely get vitamin A.

    @TheCockatielChannel Thing is we got Kiku (male) cockatiel from someone
    else at my parents shop they said the owners couldnt look after him so we
    took him in. His sort of wild type bird and i dont spend alot of time next
    to his cage but i do talk to him in a nice ways and he tweets and chirps
    back at me as a reply. Also his wings arnt clipped so how exactly do i put
    him into an old /worn out cloth? also while his on my shirt he tries to
    bite/peck at my shirt.

    For my bird, Its hair that he’s attracted to, what ive done so far and ive
    only had my bird for 3 days; I pick him up even if he gets spooked and he
    bites me, i let him rest on my finger(s) and let me look me in the face for
    a few and ill let him sit on my shoulder, ill slowly bring up some treats
    and he’ll eat from your hand, soon he reconized me nor my hand was an
    enemy, so no i have an awesome bird who flys to my
    hands/arms/shoulders/head and follows me, Hope this helps (5 Months late)

    @leos4life21 A good thing to do would be to hang your finger above the
    birds head, just out of reach. Move your finger lower and lower until the
    bird forgets about your finger. Give him millet or something similar when
    he doesnt bite. I taught my cockatiel not to bite the same way and it
    worked well. If he bites tap him hard enough on the beak to show him you
    dont like it. Good luck!

    Well its harder for birds who have the company of other birds to want to
    interact with humans

    My cockatiel is gentle, but likes to chew on my finger nails and finger
    tips. Any advice? A gentle no will eventually stop her from doing this?

    My bird has been imprinted to me for the past few years now and i’ve had
    him for 3 years. He stays out of his cage all day, 8pm is his bedtime. He
    won’t allow me to touch him hand on, he will only let me touch him with my
    face (nose, mouth, cheek) I speak to him and I spend all my time with him.
    His name is Dooley, nickname Birdy bird. As i am typing this, im baby
    talking to him and he is talking back to me lol How do i earn his trust
    enough to let me touch him with my hands?

    with gloves, I take 1 of them under tap water , and I give him a good
    shower for 5 minutes (the water is not hot nor cold, 50/50), then I dry him
    little-bit & I put him on my hand with glove& then with 1 or 2 fingers of
    my other hand without glove I give a very soft massage on the head & face &
    neck (about 20 minute massage),I make him feel safe&use to my hand , I
    repeat this for both 5 or 6 times for2days1st&2ed&3ed time they were still
    bitting but less then less until they used to my hand !

    Hi i uhm… urgh… okay where to start my cockatiels know we dont hurt
    them well our male knows. He is more comfortable with me but when i want to
    pat him right i have to grab him first (corner him in the cage) i dont grab
    him to hard but firmly so he wont flap/run away then i place him on my
    shirt and pat and say nice things to him. Is this okay to help him trust me
    more? or is this making the biting situation worse? he does bite but its
    not painful or hard. Go to my channel to see my birds
