Just tell her No and make her step up. That's what I do when Spike bites my earings. Then take your earrings out. Hope that helps :)

Bailee bites my ears when he's having a temper tantrum. :p I just take him off my shoulder and make him sit somewhere else (like my lap). Cookie bites little pimples and freckles on my back and shoulders which hurts heaps, i just put her somewhere else too. :rolleyes:

Welcome to the world of boys...Ziggy can be sooo sweet one minute and flip the next. Remove the earrings and say no. Also take him off your shoulder when he does that. Baby never does that- she just nibbles and picks at everything...

You may aswell get used to the ear nipping and the earring pulling. I just say NO and take them off my shoulder. Little Bill (my budgie) is the worst at earrings and ears. once he was nibbling my earring and he hovvered in the air and was just hung on my earring he has never done it again.
If the biting on your ear hurts really bad take them off your shoulder. But if you can stand it just ignore it they will get bored because they will get no angry reaction off you. :D

Hope the biting on you ear lobe stops soon. Because it hurts really bad if they do it too hard!:):)
