Hi. I have a female baby parrotlet, about six weeks, who is starting to wean. She's eating great (pellets, fresh foods, seed) but we seem to have a problem. She's super nippy! It really surprised me. I raised lovebirds for years and never encountered this problem. She's my first parrotlet and I was so exited, she's going to be my little buddy! But usually the biting starts with puberty or with more birdy life experience. What's going on? She's eating on her own and being handfed three times a day. She steps up, lays on her back, likes to have her head rubbed but she bites all the time. Is this a parrotlet thing? Any ideas would be great. Thanks.

-B
