    I have a 6 month old Green Cheek. He is with me all the
    time, has tons of toys, space, attention, best food. He has
    never let other people pet/scratch him, but recently he
    won't let me either. He squawks and fluffs up and tries to
    bite me if I reach to scratch him. He'll sit on my finger-
    but that's all. Part of the daily routine is for him to ride
    on my shoulder while I do his cage, food, etc, each morning.
    Yesterday he ran down my arm and bit me-HARD while I was
    mixing his food. Nothing has changed & he was always so
    sweet before. I have tried a stern "NO" and put him
    away....wrapping him in a towel & talking soft & petting him
    and jiggling him on my finger when he tries to bite or is
    too bossy. None have worked.Do they sometimes just get mean
    and stay mean? I hope not! Thanks for your time, Kristy
