I can't really find anything about it on the web anywhere...this bird actually LUNGES and digs in as hard as he/she can. There's no sweet time in between...will even go so far as to lunge and hit the side of the cage when I walk by...
So when I've looked up biting, they seem to be referring to a nip...no...this bird almost had me in stitches...literally...and wouldn't let go. Just kept digging in and digging in until my fiance tapped it on the beak. It's becoming a terrifying little guy, and I really don't know how to handle it. My other cockatiel is a sweetie....

I think this question was answered in your other post, sorry this one was missed, I was curious though how old is your new tiel?

I just found out that the tiel that was so aggressive is only 10 weeks old. I took her to a lady at the local pet shop who had offered to do some watching and observing behavior to better help me deal with the situation. I will pick her up tomorrow and hopefully have a better understanding of what's going on with her.
