"Hi, I recently took over the care of my sister's 17-year old Meyers parrot because they stopped paying attention to her the last five years. She's very friendly with me and is always wanting to be handled and head-scratched. If my husband comes by though, she gets really mad and will bite me really hard, breaking skin. She is relentless about it. He's not trying to pet her or touch me, he's just in the same room. I try not to get startled and calmly put her back in the cage but what else can I do to discourage her from reacting this way? Also, I put her cage next to my 32-year old male cockatiel, is there any reason I should separate the cages? It's been a couple months and they don't interact in anyway. I do not let them out of their cages at the same time and I keep the cages far enough so that she cannot climb on it. "
