1.have you made notes as to what is causeing her to bite?
2.How old is she? she may be going through puberty.
3.When did she start this?
4.To what extent is she biting?
5.Is it your hands that frighten her?
6.How long have you had her?
suggestions in the meantime...
do NOT pull away when she bites. Take it when she is doing it put her into a travel cage.. or another cage separate from her own.. time out thing sort of, for about 5 minutes. But be sure when you do this, it is because there is no reason for her to bite you.. If she has a reason for biting, then you need to learn what it is you are doing that needs to be changed..for example.. are you trying to hold her? and she is biting? then learn not to hold her. allow her to hold you.
