    Sounds like your bird is jealous, it happens as they think
    we are their mates.
    I would clip its wings.
    Sorry,,,,,,I know some people hate to do that but it really
    helps to control them when they get like that. Watch for
    other bird owners and make sure thats what you want to do
    maybe they have better answers but thats what I would do to
    save your husband. I have 10 parrots here in the house and
    all wings are clipped for me to have more control plus to
    keep them from going to another cage to start a fight.
    Birdies are fine with it here.
    Good luck,
