Sorry for the delay. The beak book by Sally Blanchard is a great resource to figure out why she is biting and how to prevent it. You need to understand why she is biting you. I know she is young and she may just be doing an equivalent to our teething stage. Have you taught her to step up yet. You can use training as a diversion for the biting. If you are holding her and she tries to bite you, just shake your arm a little and get her off balance to distract her. It is important to not be afraid of the biting. All birds bite at some time or another. It is their way of communiating with us when they want something. She may be biting because she is overstimulated or excited. Watch for pinning in her eyes and fluffed feathers. It may be difficult to tell if her eyes are pinning until her eyes get the hazelnut color when she matures. She may be bite when she is tired, eating, or playing. Make sure she is getting a good 10-12 hours of good sleep each night. It is hard to tell why she bites since I don't know when she is biting you. Hope that helps. Let me know.
