I think it depends on his other behaviours as well. Does he vocalise a lot and sing? My hen vocalises a lot but it's not a song, she just kind of screeches whereas my male sings and does heart wings and bangs his head on things. If he does all of the male behaviours then he's probably a male and maybe just getting nesty because of hormones. My conure is extremely aggressive because of hormones, but not all of my birds are so it definitely depends on the birds.So there could be a chance that Rico is a hen? Is it possible he is a hermaphrodite? I know not all birds are aggressive when hormonal but oh boy Rico is. He is very VERY aggressive when hormonal, and it’s like a switch flips in his mind. He goes from a sweet bird to the spawn of Satan.
As far as fresh food is concerned, I use a lot of leftover foods that I wouldn't eat anyway for mine so that I'm not buying specifically for them. When I have strawberries and cut the tops off I save them as they like the leaves too, they can eat the middle of bell peppers, the stalks of broccoli, the middle of an apple (minus the seeds) and the ends of carrots. I also sometimes give them a couple of grapes or berries if I'm eating it. They also like to eat grass from the garden and tree branches if I can find any for them. That might help with getting them some fresh food?
