Question HELP, nightmare IRN bluffing

Hi all, I'm new to the forum last Thursday we got our first IRN, she is 6 months old and has been hand reared. The lady we got her from warned that she is going through the bluffing stage right now which was fine, BUT the last 3 days she's turned super nasty towards myself (not so much hubby tho) I go near the cage and she lunges at me weather she's in her cage or on her cage!! Every now and then she'll step up onto my hand but then will just latch on, I have several bandaids on from her!! I've read to just ignore this stage and the biting etc, but has anyone got any info or tips or insight to this stage for me?? I really want her to love me haha!! I've tried treats when she's being gentle and not nasty but still nothing!!! HELP
