Rocko used to be like that and I used target training and now he always steps up anywhere without the target stick and he never bites me anymore and lets me touch him everywhere.

It is probably hormonal...
My tiel has days when he is really super grumpy, but he is not in the habit of biting. He just looks like he is going to bite (he wants to scare me I guess), but he doesn't touch me. I think he only bit me once, and although I don't quite remember how it happened, I think it was my fault as he had probably given me signals that he wanted to be left alone.
