Need help with an aggressive Conure

Forgive me if you see this on another post I am desperate to find an answer.
Hi all, I love my Conure but I cannot and will not tolerate his attacks any longer. He started to attack my Tiels who are so gentle, they cannot fly due to some wing problems. I rescued them so they would have a nice home here.

He actually has gotten into their cage, everything was fine for months and suddenly started to attack. Just now I let him out if his cage and I was sitting on the couch with my new rescue tiny dog and he attacked us, Luckily I realized what was going to happen before any harm was done then he flew right into the other birds' cage. I just want them all to get along. Do any of you have any suggestions aside from caging him more during the day... He will scream the whole time he is in the cage Thanks

If he is not clipped the first thing I would do is clip him for the tiels safety.. He can and will kill them if given the chance. Reading body language and avoiding an attack is good, it may just be hormones causing him to act out. My conure loves my hubby but attacks him when she gets hormonal, and when she bites him she bites hard. With me she is hardly ever nippy. She seems to of gotten over this stage and gone back to being her normal sweet self ... She is kept clipped as I have other birds and she does not like them. She will not seek them out however so I don't worry that way.

We need more information really, what type of conure, male or female, how old, what diet, do they have a routine, how long you had them.
When did the behaviour start?

Yes, more info is definitely needed. Also, what light schedule, bird or human?

As the others have said, if you can explain his life in more detail then we can point out any potential causes. Sex (DNA?) and age is a big help I believe he's a mitred? But I could be completely wrong and I'm too tired to search through older posts Sorry!
