    Been having a problem lately....dident really start getting bad till he got biger and now its starting to hurt. My ducky bitting my fingers and hands a little to hard. Why is he doing this and how do i tell him no, or at least get him to stop? I dont think he means it as trying to hurt, cuz he knows my hands feed and water him being as im his "mom"(ima guy and thats wierd but whatever lol).

    He likes you [​IMG] ....the best way to correct the nibbling is to just lightly tap him on the bill every time he does it. Just hard enough that he gets the message but not hard enough to hurt him.

    Convince him that you are not his "Mom", but instead a superior being that won't put up with his crap. Such behavior generally escalates unless nipped in the bud. (Pun intended.[​IMG]) When poutry view us as equals, they treat us as they would their flock mates, and that ain"t pretty.
