I have also used this with both parrotlets I have owned, except I say "soft kisses."
I think its amazing that they understand.

I use the words 'No beak!' with my guy and it is beginning to work very well. If he doesn't heed the 'No beak!' rule - he goes into his cage for a short time.

The funny thing is - once put there - he will repeat "No Beak! No Beak No Beak!" over and over again! Once he quiets, I take him out of the cage again. He is beginning to understand the rules very well now!

Thank you so much for passing this on! I was worried on what to do if my first 'let (I'm getting him Thursday!!) bites me and this made me feel soo much better! I think this should be made into a sticky so other newbies can see it as well.

Kim,
The only thing different that I do (don't do) is yell at them. If they are timid or new to you, that sends a negative message to them, as does putting them in their cage. They are so smart, that all I have ever done is tell him "bad bird, I don't like bad birds, I only like good birds. Good birds don't bite. I like soft beakies".
Sure enough, he takes it all in and then gives me a little soft "love bite". They are so smart.....
