Can Suns get mood swings during breeding season

My Sun has been like Jekyll and Hyde for the past week. One minute she wants to hang with me and be with me and the next minute she is biting. Today, I moved the cage to a different location which seemed to calm her down some. She was spending time on the bottom of the cage chewing the food cups and the grate, weird behavior.

So my questions are:

1. Can bird be hormonal during early May? (it's not early spring now)
2. Can hormones trigger mood swings? I know they can trigger bites, screams, and stuff but my Sun was flipping back in forth in a matter of minutes.

1,000% they can.
Just checking. I feel like I am living with someone with severe PMS. I ended up moving the cage and setting up a sleep cage. If this doesn’t calm her down I don’t know what to do.

A crossover Quaker Scuti (F), A Sun conure name TBD (?), A Cinnamon Green Cheek conure name TBD (?), and 6 budgies, Scuti Jr. (f), Blue (m), yellow (m), clark Jr. (f), and two babies name TBD (f&f).
Crap I bought a sun and sent out DNA today to be sexed, I hope I don't have to go through the terrible 2s again.
