You're right it has only been 10 days. Chooki (the parrot which I've known for longer) is less aggressive than the new parrot.

Would anyone recommend me taking the new bird to a stand at a different location to be around me while I study for a couple of sessions or would that just aggravate the situation when she returns to the main cage? (The owner is unwilling to have them living separately).
The new bird hasn't had enough time to get to know you, so picking it up and putting it on a stand will likely frighten it. I would say you would be better off taking the old bird to a stand to work with him--but that is going to be easier said than done.
