Re: Aggression towards women

Sleeping tents aka "Happy Huts" are among the most dangerous of accessories! Parrots tend to chew and ingest the strands, leading to blockages and painful deaths. Not all parrots do this and some folks inspect daily, but the potential for harm coupled with hormonal release in "dark spaces" makes them about the worst cage addition. I'd respectfully suggest you remove and discard. There are some huts made from sea-grass that are safer, but the problem of enclosure persists.

Similarly, blanket snuggling is conducive to hormonal nesting issues. If you are willing to refrain from using the hut and cease using the blanket and similar items, behaviors may improve. Improved socialization may improve the tendency to lunge. Some folks advocate "Target/Clicker" training as reward: Clicker & Target Training
