Bob - I'd say Libby has been like this for about six months now. Well before I brought Charley home (she never sees me cuddling and fussing over Charley). Libby will be 2 years old in February.
A friend of mine who used to have a Sun Conure said that when he reach maturity, he would bite like crazy, but after six or seven months, he stopped and never bit them again.
She seems a bit better since she's in the bird room with Angelina and in her new cage, but she'll still zap me if she gets a chance. I'm still handling her, but being very careful. She doesn't allow cuddling any more and she only allows me to rub her neck through the cage bars, not when she's on my finger.
Maybe she'll grow out of it, but even if she doesn't, I accept her as she is. She still gets lots of attention, but very carefully!
I will try putting her on the floor though -- might help -- she hates being on the floor!
JoAnne, Libby (2/10),Angelina (12/07), and Charley (11/10)
